DIFFERENT TRACKS TO FIT YOUR NEEDS

Start Here, Finish There

In six months to two years at CLTCC, you can earn everything from a certificate in manufacturing to an associate’s degree in technical studies. Those credits transfer to a four-year university like Northwestern State University if you want to keep going for a bachelor’s.

Get Certified At CLTCC

Your manufacturing education at CLTCC begins with C4M, a certificate program that can be your only step or just your foot in the door. The 15-hour program builds the core skills you need to get that entry-level position at a manufacturer like RoyOMartin and Gilchrist in just six months. You also can earn a state-recognized credential from LED FastStart to put you even further ahead.

Earn A Degree At CLTCC

Students who graduate with a technical diploma earn, on average, almost as much money as those with a two-year degree. But if you're interested in more than a technical diploma, CLTCC offers an associate's degree in Industrial Manufacturing Technology.
