Central New Mexico Community College will delay offering some of the classes it had wanted to make available this fall at the AMREP Southwest building in Rio Rancho.
Chris Burroughs, CNM communications manager, said the classes this fall at the AMREP building in Rio Rancho will start about a month late and last 12 weeks.
The state committee that approves capital projects for higher education facilities at its May meeting did not allow CNM to present its proposal for using the site. CNM submitted additional documentation and instead obtained approval at the June meeting.
The courses this fall are child development 1020, a 45-hour entry level course; diesel equipment electrical systems; introduction to diesel equipment; electrical theory I; electrical DC/AC lab; introduction to criminal justice; and fire science 1504, wildland firefighting.
In a Feb. 27 release, CNM had included police service aide, teacher education, education assistant, teachers using technology and health 1001 among the courses they expected to offer this fall.
Brad Moore, CNM spokesman, said EMS and nursing classes will become available at the AMREP building in the spring term. Burroughs said health and English classes have also been delayed until the spring.
CNM outreach and academic advisers will help new students at the AMREP building Aug. 19-20 from 4-6:30 p.m. with the college’s admittance process, she said.
