Cooperative Work Experience

The Cooperative Work Experience (CWE) Program offers students the opportunity to explore career paths and earn college credit for skills learned on the job. Students have access to current information about careers and available jobs as well as an opportunity to extend work place learning by defining measurable learning objectives. The success of the program is dependent upon support from the worksite supervisor, guidance from the assigned faculty, and the commitment of the student to complete the learning objectives. Students may earn credit for general or occupation related paid or volunteer work. A combined maximum of sixteen (16) units of Cooperative Work Experience credits may be earned.

EMS Student

"The EMT program here has helped me establish the training and education necessary to succeed. As an EMT, I need to be prepared to handle each situation in a professional manner and at this academy they help train you in order to deal with these situations. The teachers here are great- they are able to share and relay their experiences in order to train us to deal with the different situations that we're going to encounter."
