Educational Programs

Many certificate and degree programs are available within each department and discipline at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College. A listing of all the available programs is located in the Educational Programs section of the college catalog. More specific information about the college’s Associate Degree, Certificate of Achievement, Skills Certificate, Noncredit, and Apprenticeship programs is provided below.

Associate Degree Programs

Associate in Science (AS) and Associate in Arts (AA) degree programs are composed of three parts: general education, a major or an area of emphasis, and additional graduation requirements or electives to bring the total units to a minimum of 60 semester units. However, the associate degree represents more than an accumulation of units. Instead, it embodies completion of a well-defined pattern of learning experiences that are designed to develop certain capabilities. All the general requirements for the associate degree at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College are specified in the Associate Degree Requirements section of the college catalog. The specific degree requirements--majors or areas of emphasis, electives, and general education graduation plan--for each AS or AA program is provided in the Programs and Courses section of the college catalog.

Certificate of Achievement Programs

In addition, a website is available with detailed information on all of the Certificate of Achievement programs the college offers. A Certificate of Achievement is issued in State-approved programs designed for students who are looking for instruction with a high degree of specialization. Certificate of Achievement programs vary in length (typically ranging anywhere from 12 to 48 units), but most have 18 or more semester units, and may be pursued on a full-time or part-time basis. Certificate of Achievement programs are usually less than a two-year educational program comprised of courses needed to prepare students for immediate employment.

Skills Certificate or Other Short-Term Certificate Programs

The college also offers a number of Skills or other short-term Certificate programs. These programs are less than 12 units, typically can be completed in one semester or less, and are intended to prepare students with a specific skill-set enabling them to become either more “specialized” or to “broaden” their skills and abilities within a particular career or occupation. Students completing a Skills Certificate (or other short term certificate) program receive a certificate document from the college but it will not be noted on the student’s transcript.

back to the top

Noncredit Programs

Noncredit programs are an organized sequence of two or more courses leading to a defined objective, certificate, a diploma, or license. Noncredit programs at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College generally fall into these two program areas: career development and college preparation or career technical programs with “high employment potential” that provide 288 hours or more of instruction. Courses comprising noncredit programs are not applicable to a credit certificate or degree program.

Apprenticeship Programs

Apprenticeship programs prepare students for any profession, trade, or craft that are learned through a combination of supervised, on-the-job training with off-the-job formal education. Los Angeles Trade-Technical College’s apprenticeship programs are intended for students who are indentured to learn a trade under agreement with the State of California Division of Apprenticeship Standards. As such these programs are restricted to indentured apprentices only.
