Welcome to CareerTech Transitions at Pasadena City College.  CareerTech Transitions will continue the work that was initiated and formalized through the work of Tech Prep.  CareerTech Transitions helps students earn college credit, encourages participation in the PCC SummerTech Institute before entering college, and culminates with GUARANTEED classes for those who are a part of our DesignTech Pathway.  It is designed to help students gain academic knowledge, employability, technical skills, and transfer if that is your desire.

It is designed to help students gain academic knowledge and technical skills, whereby one can earn college credit for their secondary (high school) coursework through the completion of articulated courses.  Programs are intended to lead to an associate's degree or a certificate in a specific career field, and ultimately, to high wage, high skill employment or advanced postsecondary training.

So who is a CareerTech Transitions student?  Someone interested in transitioning into a career pathway that will lead toward a future career...someone who would like to connect their academics to the real-world...somone who might desire attending a university after attending community college...ultimately, someone who wants to improve academically and they have decided to move beyond the life of being a student to that of a learner.
