Career Programs


Click here for the MDCC Career Technical Education Student Orientation

The programs of study listed under the career curricula provide one or two years of career education and skills training. All students that have completed career programs should obtain employment at the apprentice level.

Industry's demand for skilled labor created the need for development of career training programs. Mississippi's movement toward industrialization carries with it the demand that a segment of the population secure the skills necessary to meet the needs of industry. Mississippi Delta Community College has assumed the responsibility of offering such training programs for the counties it serves: Bolivar, Humphreys, Issaquena, Leflore, Sharkey, Sunflower and Washington.
