College Credit Potential

All programs at PLCC have the potential for either direct articulated credits at select colleges and/or universities or are able to acquire college credits through career technical assurance guides (CTAGs) in cooperation with the Ohio Department of Higher Education.

On The Job Training

During the senior year, students who have met the requirements and have received a recommendation by their program instructor, have the opportunity to go on School-to-Work Job Placement.  We work with our students and local employers to place them in a job that is related to their program of study, giving them real-life experience while simultaneously earning school credit.
