Career & Technical Education

Mission Statement

Career & Technical Education at Norco College provides technical and academic skills designed to prepare learners to pursue a successful career in an increasingly competitive job market, further educational opportunity and promote lifelong learning. 

What is CTE?

Career & Technical Education (CTE) at Norco College offers Certificate Programs and Associate of Science Degrees with an occupational emphasis. These programs offer the education and training necessary to lead individuals directly to employment, update the knowledge and skills of current workers, and/or lead to further academic growth at 4-year universities.

The CTE programs at Norco College strive to keep current with labor market and industry trends. By bringing together local employers, faculty, staff and students our curriculum is ever changing to meet the demands of an increasingly competitive job market.

Associate of Science Degree programs require completion of at least 60 units of credit, which normally will take 4 semesters. Certificate programs, many of which lead to an Associate of Science Degree, vary in the number of units required. Most can be completed in 2 - 4 semesters.  Each course required for a certificate must be completed with a “C” grade or better. All can be counted toward its related degree.
