Workforce Programs  

Workforce programs provide opportunities for students to develop skills to enter a variety of careers immediately upon completion of a degree or a certificate. By working closely with employers in agriculture, business, industry, health agencies, and public agencies, the College has designed workforce programs so students will learn the specific skills needed for meaningful careers.

Associate of Applied Science
Associate of Applied Science degrees require the equivalent of two years as a
full time student. They comprise technical skill courses, general education, support courses, and capstone experiences. Although workforce programs are primarily designed for immediate employment, students may transfer academic courses to universities and may transfer workforce courses in cases where specific articulation agreements have been developed. Students should consult with their academic advisors or counselors to determine the transferability of A.A.S. programs.

 
Workforce Education certificate programs
Workforce Education certificate programs are designed to provide specific skills for students to seek immediate employment in a variety of careers in agriculture, business, industry, health, and public agencies. Also, students who are already employed may use these programs for in-service training. Workforce Education certificate programs vary from the equivalent of one semester to two years of full-time study. The typical certificate program requires the equivalent of one year of full-time study. However, students may pursue these programs on a part-time basis.
