Plumbing, Sign Language Classes Starting

Wayne Community College Continuing Education will start a plumbing and a sign language class next week.

“Basic Plumbing 1” is designed for students seeking a career in the plumbing trade and those who simply want to learn how to plumb. It addresses topics plumbers face on a daily basis including water supply systems, soldering, drains and vents, fixtures, installation, and more. Students will explore outside areas that will further their knowledge of plumbing techniques and materials.

The class will be taught 6-10 p.m. on Mondays, Sept. 16-Nov. 4 in Room 203 of the Wayne Learning Center (main building) on the college’s campus in Goldsboro.

“American Sign Language I” provides a basic understanding of sign language and familiarizes the student with deafness and the problems involved. Through lecture and hands-on activities, students will develop the ability to sign understandably and clearly, read sign language well, and develop a basic sign language vocabulary.

It is scheduled for 6-9 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Sept. 17-Nov. 12 in Room 217 of the Wayne Learning Center.

Cost for each course is $120. Students may register and pay in advance at the Continuing Education Division’s Customer Service Desk in the Walnut Building on the college’s main campus, by clicking on “Register Now” at, or at the first class session.
