Students are referred to this program through Workforce Development, OIC, and/or other third party entities. This program is designed to serve students who are un/under employed and assist them in developing skills needed to obtain and retain positions in health care. The program is taught in four (4) phases.
Phases I, II, and III of PHCAST are offered at the Opportunities Industrialization Center (OIC) and at the Business Incubator (BI) several times each year. Interested students should contact their location of interest to determine course offerings, eligibility and requirements.
Contact the site of interest to determine the process and when the next upcoming courses are scheduled.
Each year the last Thursday in January, at 3 p.m., a Health Occupations ceremony is held for continuing education students in the Keihin Auditorium. Light refreshments are available immediately following in the atrium. Please note this is when students will receive recognition certificates for programs completed in the previous year.
All Health Occupation students should plan to take the CRC/Work Keys Assessment prior to completion of a course. It should only be taken once. A copy of the schedule will be posted in classrooms. This is a valuable work credential offered by the college and is beneficial when seeking employment. For additional information contact Sylvia Grant at firstname.lastname@example.org.
