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.
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.
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.
At CLTCC we have different paths to fit your needs. Whether it’s a two-month certificate program or a two-year technical degree, the skills you need are here, waiting for you. And you can start early with dual enrollment classes in high school.
You can get an early start. Students can dual enroll while in high school and take CLTCC classes at a lower rate.
