Occupational Skills Training

The Occupational Skills Training program is designed to provide the opportunity for students to receive instruction in a specific occupational area. The programs are individualized and allow flexibility in program design, delivery, and implementation. Individualized plans are developed in consultation with the student, PCC Faculty, PCC OST coordinators, work-site supervisors, and agency representative(s), if appropriate.

An interview with an OST coordinator is required for assessment, to determine the specific occupation and to identify a suitable training site and its availability. Prerequisites are determined by specific occupational standards.
