Continuing Education Programming

  • Fibre Week

    It is with great disappointment that Olds College Continuing Education has had to make the difficult decision to cancel most of Fibre Week 2021.  The cancellation of this event has been deemed necessary due to the current Alberta Health Services (AHS) restrictions, the limitations on travel at this time and the low enrollment numbers for the event. The health and wellbeing of our students, instructors, exhibitors, visitors and staff needs to come first during this time.
