Work-Based Learning Program

Student Information

This Work-Based Learning Program (WBL) provides you with the opportunity to translate classroom theories into practical applications on the job.

Work-based learning credit on your transcript tells your future employers that not only did you perform to the specifications of your WBL employer, but that you also met LCCC's standards of performance.

YOUR FIRST STEP IN CAREER SUCCESS
The work world is in a state of almost revolutionary change. LCCC's goal is to help our students and grads become top notch job candidates who are more than up to the challenges of the digital work place.  To succeed, it helps if you think of your work not as a job, but as a career - a career that you are responsible for managing.  To do this, you need to keep your skills sharp and know how to navigate in the world of business and industry.
