Career Pathways

Are you yearning to go back to school to help you get a new job, start a new career, or to learn a new skill?

As members of the South Bay Adult Education Consortium (SBAEC), South Bay Adult School (SBAS) and El Camino College (ECC) continue to work closely together to provide Career Pathways for adult education learners. Career Pathway programs provide cost-free post-secondary education and training organized in a series of manageable steps, with multiple entry and exit points, leading to successively higher credentials and employment opportunities in growing occupations.

Each of our Career Pathways imbed extensive student support resources and learning opportunities including:
     • Free Tuition
     • Free Class Materials
     • Study groups and tutorials
     • Workshops and additional certifications (ie: CPR and First Aid, CalOSHA trainings)
     • Workforce Development Managers
     • Transition Managers 

Child Development (CDEV) 
The Child Development program prepares students for careers in private or public programs serving infants, toddlers, preschoolers, children with special needs, or children in before and after school care. Students enroll in credit-bearing college classes that qualify students to apply for the Teacher Assistant Permit (one year / two courses) and the Associate Teacher Permit (two years / four courses)
Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)
Emergency Medical Technicians are professional medical responders that have the opportunity to help ill and injured patients in various scenes and emergency situations. EMT principles that are covered throughout this career pathway include, but are not limited to: leadership, followership, communication, safety, situational awareness, scene size-up, problem-solving, decision making, patient assessment and professionalism. EMT students learn about the practices and procedures through lecture, skills lab, simulations, role-playing, tactical decision games and 24 hours of field experience. Each student that successfully completes the 170-hour course will receive an EMT Course Completion Certificate, EMT skills verification and authorization to test with the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT).
Phlebotomy Technician
Phlebotomy Technicians are in demand as one of the fastest growing occupations in healthcare. Launch your career as a Phlebotomy Technician, collecting blood samples from patients in a hospital, clinical laboratory, medical office, or clinic. Through lectures and hands-on training, learn what you need to know about the circulatory system, venipuncture technique and specimen collection, risk factors and complications, and quality assurance.  Students will sit for the the national exam and then be placed in an externship to meet the requirements as a Certified Phlebotomy Technician.
