    ''courses'' are usually considered to finish on specific days or dates. The course will finish on friday. The course will finish on October 14th.


    ''classes'' and ''lessons'' finish at a certain time. This (class)(lesson) will finish at 6:00 pm at the latest.

    However, it is possible to say, 'The course will finish at 6:00 pm (at the latest).', especially if it is a one-day course. Is that what you mean, or do you mean 'The class will finish at 6:00 pm at the latest.'?
