Career and Technical Training


Continuing Education and Workforce Training

Odessa College offers a wide variety of short-term, non- credit courses and training programs in the areas of personal enrichment, professional development and job skill enhancement. These courses range from one-day workshops to one-year programs. Continuing education units (CEUs) are awarded for successful completion of most courses. Many professionals may obtain CEUs for certification and licensure requirements.

Non-credit courses, seminars, and workshops offer a wide range of topics intended to accommodate individuals of all ages and interests. We offer face-to-face and online class options. There are no entrance requirements for most continuing education courses. 

OC continually works with prospective employers to assist in placement of graduates and to keep programs up-to-date with current job requirements. Essential occupational skills are taught in these classes by faculty who have years of working experience, as well as appropriate academic credentials.

Career and Technical programs carry college credit leading to an associate in applied science degree, a certificate of technology or a certificate of completion. Additionally, many career and technical programs provide opportunities for students to earn industry-recognized licensures or credentials, or transfer to four-year universities.
