Career Pathway Options

Career Pathways at WCTC are designed to provide students with an opportunity to gain a select set of skills by taking one credential at a time. It’s a laddering approach that divides longer programs into shorter-term credentials. The student gets trained quickly, acquires a certificate that focuses on a select set of skills, and enters the workforce. After employed, the individual can continue or return to school – while maintaining employment – and earn a higher-level skill set within that pathway.
