Pellissippi State offers lifelong learning classes on Second Saturdays

Excel, YouTube and managing change in the workforce are among the skills you can learn in just one Saturday at Pellissippi State Community College’s Weekend College in downtown Knoxville.

Every second Saturday throughout the fall, Pellissippi State Business and Community Services offers a selection of popular lifelong learning classes at the college’s Magnolia Avenue Campus, 1610 E. Magnolia Ave.

Several of the classes are free, but you must register in advance.

“These noncredit classes provide a mix of small business seminars, hobby classes and professional development courses,” said Teri Brahams, executive director of Business and Community Services. “We’re excited to offer these classes on weekends for those who can’t attend during the week.”

Second Saturday classes scheduled for Oct. 13:

  • Excel Workshop: Build on what you already know about Excel to set up a custom Excel environment. 9 a.m.-noon. $29.
  • Managing Change in the Workforce: Learn ways to deal with change productively, whether you are managing a team or learning personal skills for your own employment. 9 a.m.-noon. Free.
  • YouTube – Your Visual Voice: Marketing is constantly changing, from the shift from print media to web-based solutions, including more video content and less print. Learn to understand video content, creation, production and how to determine your video’s effectiveness. 9 a.m.-noon. Free.

Lifelong learning classes are noncredit continuing education courses. Course registration is required either online at or by calling 865-539-7167.
