What is Workforce?

Collin College offers programs to jump-start your career. In some cases you can be prepared to get your first job in less than a year. 

These programs are called Workforce programs because they prepare you to enter the woSurgical Techrkforce. You can get several kinds of certificates as well as associates degrees.

Workforce certificates are usually stackable. You can get a certificate then return for a few more courses and all will apply toward your degree. This allows you to continue improving your skills and moving up in your career.

Though these degrees are not specifically designed to transfer to 4-year schools, some universities are developing programs that will accept this coursework and apply it to a Bachelor’s degree.  This means that if somewhere down the line you decide to work on that 4-year degree, there are options for you.
