Career and Education!

The Career and Technical Education (CTE) Programs are career driven approaches that help prepare students for employment directly after they leave SBCC. The instructors have often worked, or are currently working, in the respective field and they tend to make use of hands-on learning and focus on the programs of study. SBCC has over 50 programs ranging from Automotive to Nursing, with many of the programs offering certificates and degree options. 

Looking forward to seeing you around campus!
