Career Training Programs
Career Training Programs are any classes or programs designed to help you find a job, enter a career, get a promotion or earn more money. They can be offered at Adult Schools, Technical Schools, ROPs (Regional Occupational Programs) and even Community Colleges. Often less than two years in length, many of these programs lead to a certificate, which can give you a helpful edge in the job market. Most importantly, these programs provide hands-on training to prepare students for actual work in their chosen field.
Apprenticeship programs provide individuals with paid, relevant workplace experience while acquiring the skills and credentials necessary for specific careers.
Community colleges are affordable public colleges, funded by tax dollars. The highest degree available at a community college is usually an Associate's or AA degree, which takes full-time students about two years to complete. Students can also earn certifications for careers or transfer to a four-year university.
A university is an institution of higher learning that gives degrees in special fields and where research is performed. A bachelor's degree is a course of academic study leading to a qualification such as a bachelor of arts (BA) or bachelor of science (BS) and typically takes 4 or more years to complete.
