The Career Education (CE) programs are career driven approaches that help prepare students for employment directly after they leave SBCC in high-demand, current and/or emerging occupations. The instructors have often worked, or are currently working, in the respective field and they tend to make use of hands-on learning.
Students just out of high school, students with a bachelor’s degree, or professionals seeking new skills in an industry can benefit from Career Education. SBCC has over 60 programs with many both offering certificate and associate degree options. Many programs can be completed in as little as 12 to 24 months. Classes are offered during the day, at night and online and are fully accredited.
