Occupational Skills Training Program
The Occupational Skills Training (OST) program offers students with a career goal in mind the opportunity to earn college credit for worksite-based training at approved community training sites throughout the state. When you enroll in this short-term program (up to 44 credits), you will receive hands-on training at a work site based on a curriculum personalized for your chosen occupation and your individual abilities, skills, and interests. A suitable training site and curriculum will be determined jointly with you, your sponsoring agency (if applicable), and a Skills Training Coordinator at Chemeketa. The program is offered on an open entry/open exit basis, so you may start the program any time during the year.
A variety of occupational areas may be appropriate for the Occupational Skills Training program. Related classroom instruction may be included in the program if deemed part of the approved training plan.
Total required credits may vary due to three to four credit conversion. Chemeketa degree and certificate minimum requirements must be met.
