External Learning Experiences for Career and Technical Programs

An external learning experience for Career and Technical Education awards is designed as a paid or unpaid learning experience. It enhances lecture and laboratory instruction and is provided at work sites appropriate to the discipline. The external learning experience allows a student to have practical hands on training and to apply learned concepts and theories in a workplace setting. The five types of external learning experiences:

  • Clinical
  • Internships
  • Practicum
  • Internship
  • Apprenticeship
Clinical experience must take place in a health care setting.

Prior to enrolling in one of these courses, you must consult with the program's External Learning Experience Coordinator. See the External Learning Experience Student Handbook at https://www1.dcccd.edu/catalog/GeneralInfo/CareerTechWkfcEd/ELE-Student-Handbook-(Rev2007).pdf
