Ready for an “EdVenture”?

EdVenture is our semi-annual course catalog, printed and distributed each July and December. Each EdVenture includes upcoming courses scheduled for the next six to seven months … some even farther out than that. The course catalog is mailed to selected ZIP codes from which most of the annual IVCE enrollments originate. A pdf version of EdVenture is always available for viewing or printing on this website.

Although we make every effort to get the majority of our classes set up and included in each EdVenture course catalog, there are always classes that are not included for one reason or another. That’s a great reason to click on the links above and look at the courses listed in Augusoft, which is a current snapshot of everything coming up!

To receive a free copy of the printed publication, call Iowa Valley Continuing Education at 641-752-4645 or 1-800-284-4823 or email us at and we’ll be happy to mail one to you. Extra copies are also available in the literature racks on the Iowa Valley/Marshalltown Community College, Ellsworth Community College (Iowa Falls) and Iowa Valley Grinnell campuses.
