Technical programs are based on local needs of business and industry and are designed to assist those preparing for entry into, or advancing in, an occupation.
Technical Diploma programs may be less than one year, one year or two years in length. Occupational skills coursework comprises a minimum of 80 percent of the total class time spent in these programs. Supportive related course work may constitute the remaining curricular requirements. Related instruction for apprenticeship is included as a Technical Diploma program.
