“We chose to use Whatcom Community College as our primary contract training provider because Whatcom is able to provide a very high caliber of training and education, tailored to our needs, for a very reasonable price. The instructors from Whatcom are extremely knowledgeable, but they maintain an accessible format that is appropriate for the wide variety of people we have on staff. Additionally, the instructors have been very flexible, which is key when scheduling classes for people who provide care around-the-clock. But, the real advantage is in the results! The classes were so popular, successful, and results-oriented last year that we have decided to repeat them this year in order to reach more of our staff members.”

Romona Wilcox – Massage Therapy Graduate and Business Owner:
“By the time I finished the program I had enough confidence to believe I could open and be successful in a business of my own.” And she was. Shortly after graduating, Romona opened the Gateway Therapeutic Massage and Steam Room Center.
“Without Peninsula College and the Workforce program, none of this would ever have happened.”
Now the business is owned by Romona’s daughter, Julia, also a graduate of the Massage Therapy Program. Julia says, “I chose PC because of convenience. My mother had gained a tremendous amount of information and knowledge without having to go out of town… I love that we have so many resource available so close.”
