2013 - 2014 Combined Catalogs of the Colleges

Career and Technical Programs


Career and Technical programs are Certificate or Associate in Applied Sciences degree awards designed to prepare individuals for a career. These programs are established with the assistance and cooperation of representatives from local business, to meet local and regional employment needs.

In addition to classroom instruction, most programs provide external learning experiences. These experiences are based on meeting competency-based learning objectives at a work site to enhance classroom lecture and laboratory instruction. See External Learning Experiences for Career and Technical Programs.

A Guarantee of Job Competency is provided to all students who earn a Certificate or an Associate in Applied Sciences degree.
