Choose Career Training Over a Traditional College!
Why CCC is a Great Alternative to a Traditional College
As we begin the New Year, you are probably thinking, “What will I do this year?” When you consider your plans for the year, you might think about options such as work, a traditional two- or four-year college, or an internship. If you are motivated to get to work and start making money, you may be interested in training to learn skills for a career you can enter quickly. A career training school can put you on the path to a rewarding career in a short amount of time – much shorter than four years! And you don’t have to wait until September to get started – career training schools offer start dates throughout the year! If you are ready to begin your next chapter in life, a career training school such as Central Coast College (CCC) is a great alternative to a traditional college, and could be a great choice for you!
You know you want a rewarding career, one that is both personally fulfilling and supports you financially. How will you get there? Will you learn the skills and knowledge you need through a traditional two- or four-year college, or would you be better served by receiving focused, specialized education through a career training program?
Ask yourself, is a traditional two- or four-year college right for me? The traditional college experience we’ve all seen depicted in the movies can be appealing. For students who have the means, spending years at a traditional college might seem like the right choice. But for many other students, a more focused approach to education makes sense. These students don’t want to spend their time and money on philosophy courses or an intro to political science; these students know what career interests them, and they want to learn the precise skills and knowledge set it takes to be successful in that position.
For these students, who are motivated to learn the skills and knowledge they need to get to work in their chosen field quickly, a career training school can be a superior choice to a traditional college. Career-based technical education training programs are designed to provide the specific skills needed for the student’s chosen career path. Focused and accelerated, career training can provide the relevant skills and knowledge needed to test for professional certification and obtain an entry-level position in the field.
At Central Coast College (CCC), we specialize in career training for healthcare careers. Programs are focused, concise, and provide hands-on skills training specifically designed to prepare students for their career in a short period of time. In order to accommodate busy students, all programs are offered in a hybrid-online format, so that students may complete much of their coursework online, while attending on-campus labs for hands-on skills development. All courses are taught by professional faculty, from whom students receive personalized instruction and individualized attention.
At Central Coast College, you can train for the following healthcare careers in about a year or less:
- Medical Assisting (46 weeks)
- Medical Administrative Assistant (48 weeks)
- Vocational Nursing (59 weeks)
- Veterinary Assistant (38 weeks)
In addition to these short programs, Central Coast College offers an Ultrasound Technician program, which can be completed in as few as 84 weeks (morning/afternoon program), and a Veterinary Technology Associate of Applied Science degree program, which can also be completed in as few as 84 weeks.
Does gaining the specific knowledge and skills needed to begin your career in about a year sound appealing to you? You don’t need to wait until September, just to sit through multiple years of classes that may or may not be relevant to your future career. Traditional colleges just aren’t for everyone. A career training school could be a great alternative for you! Central Coast College is designed for motivated students just like you. Located in Salinas, California, CCC offers hands-on, hybrid, and online classes for in-demand careers in the healthcare field. Give CCC a call at (831) 424-6767 to get started today!
