Coursework and training will be through current SCC health care programs, Continuing Education, the health program through The Career Academy, as well as throughout SCC’s 15-county region through the SENCAP program and the learning centers. Many courses are offered in a traditional classroom, online or a hybrid combination of both.
Students will complete one general education course and select the entry-level health care course that meets their career goals. Online and hybrid students must complete the lecture portion via computer with the lab provided at an SCC campus, learning center, TCA or SENCAP high school.
(Although the student can choose from several offered general education courses, it is recommended that they choose one of the following courses. This recommendation is made to benefit the student in transferring or applying credits to another program or college.)
Careers in health care support and technical jobs are expected to be the two fastest growing groups during the 2014-2024 projections decade. These careers are expected to contribute the most new jobs, with a combined increase of 2.3 million in employment, representing one in four jobs.
Experience and skills used in this profession will provide the student a solid foundation for advancement into other healthcare positions if they wish to continue their education.
