Metropolitan Community College is committed to constantly improving the "pipeline" of clear and accessible pathways to help students connect with careers and further education. We believe that education is ideally ongoing, even when students are in the workforce. We offer new skills to face new challenges.
What pathway is the best fit for you?
You must be both an employee and an MCC student to be an apprentice. However, if you want to lay the foundation and begin taking classes, while looking for an employer who will take you on as an apprentice, you can contact the program and find out what steps take you towards your goal.
If you are in high school and interested in graduating with industry recognized credentials as well as a diploma, you should contact this program and see if there are any career centers in your area who may be able to help you get involved.
Are you looking for short term programs (from a few weeks to a year) where you can earn industry recognized credentials so you can get into the workforce? Continuing Education supports training for in-demand careers in health care, transportation and logistics, technical skills, and information technology, as well as OSHA training that is needed for many industries.
The Public Safety Institute prepares police and firefighters, the Health Science Institute focuses on healthcare, and other programs are also available so you can get education that has a clear connection to an in-demand career.
If you already have credentials and need Continuing Education Units to maintain them, we offer flexible, affordable classes to meet a wide variety of needs.
If you want to expand your skills for any reason, you can explore affordable online education with ed2go (MCC-Longview or MCC-Maple Woods), instructor-led six week classes to develop your ability and your resume.
If you have questions about credit or non-credit coursework, or requirements for credentials, you can contact any of the teams for more information. For academic advising, financial aid, and questions about accessing other kinds of support, contact Student Services.
