ASHEBORO (Feb. 5, 2019)

Randolph Community College is offering a course in forklift operation and a line-dancing course this month.

“Forklift Operator Training” will be held from 8 a.m.-1 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 16, (#68526), and Saturday, April 13, (#68527), in room 223 at the Continuing Education and Industrial Center on RCC’s Asheboro Campus.


The course provides instruction on the operation and maintenance of a Powered Industrial Truck (forklift). It is OSHA compliant and taught by a State of North Carolina certified instructor. It is a comprehensive, hands-on program that covers all aspects of lift truck training. A certificate of completion will be provided to all students who successfully complete the course. Students should wear sturdy, closed toe and heel shoes (no crocs or flip-flops) and appropriate clothing for the weather conditions as the hands-on portion will be outside.


Participants must be 18 years of age or older to enroll in this class.


The cost of the course is $70.55.


For those looking for a fun, low-impact exercise activity, RCC’s “Line Dancing” class starts Tuesday, Feb. 26. Dancing for an hour equals an average of 2,000 steps and 75 calories burned.


Students will get moving to some of today’s biggest music hits and learn to move with confidence and stay fit while having fun, learning several line dances including “The Wobble” and the “Cupid Shuffle.” This course is for any and all, beginners to advanced dancers.


The class (#69114) will meet from 6-8 p.m. on Tuesdays, Feb. 26-April 2, in the gymnasium in the J.W. “Willie” Plummer Vocational/Technical Center on the Asheboro Campus. The cost is $30.55.
