Register now for spring HRRC classes for women

Women who want to learn how to repair and maintain their homes are invited to register for HRRC's Home How-to for Women course.

The first module in this year's curriculum, Home Maintenance 101, runs April 6 through May 22. Classes will be held each Wednesday, 7–9 p.m., at HRRC's Teaching Center, 2520 Noble Road in Cleveland Heights.

Home Maintenance 101 will cover the following topics:

  • exterior and interior home systems
  • scheduling home maintenance
  • reducing energy consumption
  • how to contract repairs
  • introduction to hand tools and power tools

Future modules in the course will cover carpentry, electrical systems and plumbing repairs. Participants can sign up for modules sequentially, or register for them individually.

Class size is limited to encourage participation in small-group learning. Early registration is suggested. Tuition for each module is $120 for Cleveland Heights residents and $150 for nonresidents. Reduced-tuition scholarships are available to low-income Cleveland Heights residents.
