Looking for a Bay Area, CA community college that offers Cisco CCNA & CCNP classes during the evenings and weekends-Needs to be a college that doesn't charge a lot for these classes.

I am only able to take classes during the evenings or weekends since I work Monday through Friday during the day.

I am especially interested in any locations in or around San Ramon, CA which is where I work.

    All of the California Community Colleges the same tuition, I am 99.99% sure.

    Here is a link to the CCC system, which has a comprehensive list of all the colleges. You can look for a college near you by map or geographic region:

    If you are looking only for certain classes, you will have to look at each individual college's Schedule of Classes. Search each college website for "schedule of classes."

    If you are looking for a program in computer science, here is the CCC academic program search engine:

    You can also double check on the tuition on each individual college's wesbite. Search on "tuition" or "cost of attending." Tuition wil be about $27 a unit, which is a very good price. CC's in other states (the ones I have checked) typically charge at least $75 a unit.

    You can also search for Cicso courses at the local universities' continuing education programs, though these would cost more. But there is a greater chance of finding an evening or weekend courses, and perhaps even have online courses. These programs are for working professionals who need to add to their skill sets.

    To find the local universities, do a Google Maps search on "Universities, San Ramon, CA." Then go to each university's website and search "Continuing Education," "Community Education, or "Extended Learning." From there, find the course offerings for computer science.

    Here is an example from U.C. Berkeley's "University Extension" website:
