OC Public Library Offers Free
Online Universal Classes
Orange County residents, who hold a library card membership with an OC Public Library, can take advantage of free online continuing education classes. Offered by the OC Public Library, Universal Class provides over 500 free online classes in a variety of subjects for job training, professional skills, computer skills, personal enrichment, academics, and hobbies. Online and video formats are available, and CE certificates are available upon completion.
OC Public Libraries also offer the opportunity to earn an accredited high school diploma and credentialed career certificate through Career Online High School, part of the world's first accredited, private online school district. Career Online High School is specifically designed to reengage adults into the education system and prepare them for entry into post-secondary career education or the workforce. Classes are supported by board-certified instructors and students have 24/7 access to the online learning platform. Coursework begins in one of eight high-growth, high-demand career fields, before progressing to the core academic subjects. Many students are able to graduate in as few as four to six months by transferring in previously earned high school credits.
