POWELL, Wyo. - The Northwest College Worland Center for Training and Development (CTD) invites area residents to start the new year by learning something new. The CTD will offer five noncredit classes the week Jan. 7-18, with topics ranging from financial matters to iPads and valentines.

The lineup of classes starts with “Wills, Estates and the Probate Process” from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 7. Taught by David Sauceda, the class touches on the basics of the Wyoming probate code, how to execute a will and what constitutes an estate asset. The $15 fee includes a light lunch.

From 6-7:30 p.m. the same evening, Sauceda will teach “Credit, Interest and Your Life.” Participants learn how their use of credit affects them, how credit reporting companies operate and how interest works. Cost is $10.

Billie Jo Norsworthy, owner of Lucy’s Sheep Camp in Thermopolis, will show how to create one-of-a-kind felted valentines from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 8. This beginning needle felting class introduces the usage of felt, roving and felting needles. The $25 cost includes a $15 supply fee.

Lisa Smith and Sandy Winninger of Park County School District No. 6 team up Saturday, Jan. 18, to offer two iPad classes. They’ll cover “iPad Pre-Basics” from 9-10 a.m. for new iPad owners and “iPad Basics” from 10-11:30 a.m. for iPad users who already know how to turn on their device and find the Internet. Beginners will learn best uses for the iPad as well as tips and tricks. Cost is $10 for the pre-basics class and $15 for the basics.

All five classes meet in the Worland Community Center Complex at 1200 Culbertson Ave.
