CEC/Learning Labs

The Curriculum Enhancement Center (CEC) and the FCC Learning Lab can be used by individual students or by classes.  Many classes at PRCC meet on a regular basis in the CEC and Learning Lab.  Classes utilize computer-assisted instructional assignments which allows the student to work at his/her own pace.
