Sign up to save on valuable home improvement course

Save money and the aggravation of hiring professionals when you sign up to learn simple home improvement skills through Hillsborough County Schools.


Qualified Tampa Water Department customers can apply for a $166 voucher towards the twice-weekly course bringing the cost down to just $50.


The eight-week Home Improvement course on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6 to 9 p.m. covers everything from basic plumbing and simple electrical repairs to drywall.


The classes take place at the hands-on lab at Hillsborough Technical Education Centers Erwin campus and are taught by an expert handyman with more than 30 years of experience.


Interested participants should call (813) 274-8121 (option #5) to request the home improvement tuition voucher. One non-transferable voucher is available per qualified City of Tampa utility account. Vouchers are available on a first come, first served basis.


After you receive your voucher, register for the course by visiting the Erwin Technical Center Evening Admissions Office at 2010 E. Hillsborough Ave., Tampa between 1 and 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday. The remaining $50 course fee is due at that time.


The next course is scheduled to start on Tuesday, Oct. 22.
