About The Bedford Center

In January 2005, Central Virginia Community College began offering classes to the residents of the city and county of Bedford at a new, state-of-the-art facility in the Bedford Center for Business.  Delivery systems include classroom instruction as well as Web-based /Internet courses, hybrid courses, Blackboard Collaborate (real-time web-conferencing) courses*, and  specialized training in workforce development for business and industry.

An academically accelerated Early College program is also offered.  Qualified high school juniors complete their last two years of high school at the Bedford Center and earn an Associate Degree in General Studies at the same time as their high school diplomas.  This program is also offered to qualified home-schooled students.

In addition to classes, the Bedford Center is a full service facility offering admissions and enrollment, assistance with financial aid, degree and transfer advising, and payment processing.  Services also include placement testing, career and interest inventories, and proctoring.

The Center also has a community meeting room which seats up to 85 people and is available for technology based seminars and conferences at no charge to government and non-profit groups.  The room may be scheduled for use by other groups with a fee.

*Blackboard Collaborate courses are delivered live, real-time (days/times established) using web-conferencing software, Bb Collaborate.  Faculty teaching these courses do not have students present with them - all students are "remote."
