2019-2020 Evening Program

ROC 2019-2020 Evening Programs

 

Welcome to the ROC’s evening career training programs, launching in the fall of 2019. Students will have the opportunity to get trained in both the technical and career readiness skills related to the industry from credentialed instructors who have or currently work in the industry.

 

Who: Evening courses are open, free of charge, to any junior or senior student in the KHSD (see exceptions below in red). In addition, adults may also enroll in the course for a fee.
Length: All classes run for a full school year, beginning Tuesday, August 20, 2019, for a total of 300 hours of training.
When: Every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday throughout the school year from 5:30pm to 8:30pm.
Where: Training is conducted at the Regional Occupational Center, located at 501 S. Mt. Vernon Avenue. Refer to the Aerospace listing below for program exceptions.
Bus Service: Bus transportation, if needed, will be provided to high school students only from their home school to the ROC.
Credit: High school students will earn 10 credits per semester completed and all students will have the opportunity to earn industry certification(s) through the course. Select programs also offer college credit opportunities.**
HS Registration: High School students must complete an online application to attend an evening class. This is a different application than the one for the regular school day programs at ROC (should students change their mind about what they wish to apply for, then need only complete a new application as the ROC staff will consider only the most recent application). Applicants will receive an email receipt after they submit the application with details about the mandatory orientation to be held August 5, 2019, at 6:00 PM at the Kern County Ag Pavilion located at 3300 East Belle Terrace Ave. Students will be officially enrolled in the course at this time.
Adult Registration: Adult students must register for the class in person by meeting with a Recruitment & Career Technician at the ROC during regular business hours (Monday through Friday 7:00 to 3:30). Adults may call and schedule an appointment, but walk-ins are also welcome. For adults to secure their spot in the course they will need to complete the registration paperwork and pay the course fee.
