The programs were announced May 14 to BCC’s Board of Trustees in the College’s latest effort to provide students with careers in fast-expanding fields and help Space Coast businesses grow by expanding the pool of trained employees.
The new programs are:
Associate of Science Degree in Cyber Security, starting in spring 2013.
Associate of Science Degree in Health Information Technology, starting in spring 2013.
Post-Secondary Adult Vocational Certificate in Police, Fire, Ambulance, 911 Dispatcher,
starting in spring 2013.
Post-Secondary Adult Vocational Certificate in Electrical Repairs, starting in August 2013.
The programs follow the College’s decision in March to begin offering four-year degrees for the first time in its history starting in August 2013. Students will have the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Applied Science Degree in Organizational Management with two concentration options – general management or health care management.
BCC also will start offering a Concurrent Nursing Program in August 2013. It provides students entry into the University of Central Florida’s College of Nursing after they successfully complete their first year of nursing studies at BCC.
The College surveyed a wide cross-section of businesses of all sizes throughout Brevard
to gauge their workforce needs. College officials also closely examined a state list that targeted sectors where job growth was expected in Central Florida, with a specific emphasis on high-need jobs.
