CCFI is the Community College Financial Institute.  CCFI will offer courses on a variety of subjects including a 5 day basic course as well as courses on more advanced topics.   All courses are conducted as an interactive class where students will learn from the experience of other students on business operations. Class size is limited to 25.   Colleges should not send more than 2 or 3 participants since much of the class discussions are spent on comparing colleges and it is difficult to have a lot of dialog if there are too many participants from one college.  Courses now being offered are listed below:
