Program Assessment: Workforce
Workforce Education Educational Programs
The Workforce Education Division consists of three departments: Health Science, Career and Technology and Workforce Development.
Health Science Department
Philosophy and Purpose
The philosophy and purpose of the Health Science Division reflect not only those of the College, but also focus on the specific areas of knowledge required for Associate Degree Nursing, Vocational Nursing, Dental Assisting, Medical Laboratory Technology, Drug and Alcohol Abuse Counseling, Emergency Medical Services, and Radiologic Technology. Through specifically designed curricula, students may be able to write the applicable examinations for registry, licensure or certification required by each health-related occupation. After successful completion of all requirements, graduates are readily employable.
Career and Technologies Department
Curricula in the Career and Technologies Department meet the needs of four groups of students:
1. Students who plan to transfer to senior colleges or universities at the end of two years to receive a baccalaureate degree.
2. Students in Industrial Technologies who will seek employment after 2 years of study.
3. Students in certificate programs who will seek employment at the end of one semester or 1-year of study.
4. Students already employed who are seeking possible promotional opportunities to comply with their employer’s training requirements.
The Career and Technologies Department will provide basic instruction and adequate pre-employment training for students preparing for positions in industry that require high degrees of skill and technical knowledge.
