  1. Go to the Newberg Center on one of these dates for Winter 2017:
    • Wednesday, January 4, 6-8 pm, Room 110
    • Monday, January 9, 6-8pm, Room 110
    • Wednesday, January 11, 6-8pm, Room 110
    • Tuesday, January 17, 6-8pm, Room 110
  2. When you are there, fill out an admissions form and take the placement exam.
  3. After the exam, you will be told which class you will attend and where that class will be. You will also be told to bring your payment to class.
  4. PCC will register you for the class.
  5. You must attend the class the first day. Winter 2017 classes begin on Monday, January 9 (Levels 4 and 5) or Tuesday, January 10 (Levels 1 and 3).
  6. There are two possible payment options:
    • If you are receiving food stamps, or you are on the Oregon Health plan, or are a dislocated worker, you can qualify to take the class for free. For this you will need to bring a copy of proof of your participation with a current date, your name, the name of the program and your policy number. Your teacher will help you.
    • If you don’t qualify for either program then you will pay the regular amount for the class:
      • Level 1 - 3: $63.20
      • Level 4 - 5: $118.90
