Want to Get Trained and Get to Work?

Not all careers require a two-year degree. JCC’s Career in a Year initiative promotes the many career and technical education programs that train students in a year or less.

These credentials can prepare students to immediately enter the workforce or be additional certification as the student pursues an associate’s degree.
