Programs are designed with knowledge and/or skills activities giving students the opportunity to become proficient in competencies required for employment in business and industry. All curricula are developed through the Board of Supervisors for Community and Technical Colleges via committees consisting of representatives from the governing board, curriculum specialists, instructors, and advisory members from business and industry. The Board of Supervisors for Community and Technical Colleges reviews and gives final approval of all credit-based program curricula.
Program lengths are two years or less. Training programs include occupational and technical fields, general education, continuing education, business and industry specific training, and other special modifications of programs as necessary to meet the requirements of business and industry.
The technical college operates under an open entry policy for all applicants. Certificates, Technical Diplomas, and the Associate of Applied Science degree programs are offered for enrollment. The Associate of Applied Science degrees for all intents and purposes are terminal degrees in that only the general education courses transfer to other postsecondary colleges and universities in the state. The core curricula of all programs are not designed for transfer to other 2-year or 4-year institutions outside of the LTC System unless specifically stated otherwise. Transferability is up to the receiving institution.
