Career Development Program

CCTI classSince 1979, women and men throughout the Research Coast have participated in the services provided through the Career Development Program. The program was established to assist people in obtaining the skills and confidence necessary when entering the workforce or returning to school.

The Career Development Program includes the Professional Career Program and the Equity for Non-Traditional Careers Program. The aim of the program is to assist individuals by providing information on alternatives available to them at the College and in the community so that they can achieve their potential. Some of the services offered are referrals, career counseling, financial aid information, tuition assistance, and the 24 credit hour Professional Career Program in Business Management.

The Equity for Non-Traditional Career Program provides tuition assistance to individuals in the greatest financial need who are seeking the necessary education to pursue high-wage, non-traditional occupations. Women and men seeking non-traditional occupation degree programs or vocational certificate programs may benefit from this program. The Equity program specialist creates an informal partnership with the students as an advocate and mentor to promote success in reaching education and career goals.
