OCC is proud to offer more than 50 robust and exciting career technical education (CTE) programs that give students the education, technical training and work-based learning experiences they need to qualify for and excel in the well-paying career of their choice in two years or less.
CTE courses take place in state-of-the-art facilities equipped with industry-standard equipment and technology. Many programs offer training that leads to industry certification and licensure. Students enrolled in CTE classes and programs can choose either a short-term training course to earn a certificate of achievement or specialization in job-specific technical skills, or a two-year program to earn an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree. A number of CTE programs offer students options to transfer to four-year colleges and universities after graduation.
