Career and Technical Education

The Butte-Glenn Community College District offers Career and Technical Education programs designed to prepare students to enter their selected career or occupation, and to advance socially, economically, and professionally within their selected careers. The District's plan for Career and Technical Education is an educational sequence that offers the potential of a Baccalaureate Degree but has the flexibility of preparing and allowing students to leave the sequence with gainful employment skills short of the attainment of this Degree.

Associate in Arts (AA) and/or Associate in Sciences (AS) Degree Programs

These programs are for students who want and are capable of the ultimate in a community college education: employment skills plus General Education development. Upon completion of the Associate Degree program, that student may enter skilled to semi-professional employment or advanced career education at a state university.

Certificate of Achievement Programs

These programs are for students who want to take virtually all their work in specialized employment preparatory courses. Upon obtaining a Certificate of Achievement, the student can enter skilled employment or continue schooling an additional year for the Associate Degree.

Career Upgrading and Retraining Courses

Courses will be offered at the community college for a variety of occupations on a number of levels depending upon the expressed needs of people in the college community.
