Individual Training Account (ITA)

Credit vs. Non-Credit. What’s the Difference?
The credit and non-credit programs both provide valuable job skills for a great career. Classes taken in credit programs, however, can often be used as a stepping stone toward an associate’s or bachelor’s degree.
Public Service and Law Enforcement Careers
LCCC offers many certificate training programs that help you learn new career skills in a hurry. The short-term training opportunities are perfect for those who want to train for a good job, but aren’t able to commit to long-term education or training.
Plus, credits earned for many of these programs can be applied to related LCCC associate’s degree and LCCC University Partnership bachelor’s degree programs.
See how you can turn a short-term committment into long-term success for your employment and educational goals.
