Professional Education

Our Mission:

Workforce & Professional Education, WPE at OCC aims to empower individuals, as well as local businesses, by providing affordable, student-centered, high-quality vocational and professional development opportunities with clear pathways to success.

WPE offers a wide variety of workforce-related courses for training, professional education, and pathways to degree programs for community members and incumbent workers. These offerings are focused on revitalizing careers, reskilling workers, and gaining new credentials to assist employers in growing their business. WPE also offers a number of exciting apprenticeship opportunities and work-based learning that benefit both participating students and their employers.

OCC currently works with many employers and public entities in Ocean County to provide training for incumbent workers in a variety of areas. Training can be customized to an employer’s individual needs and, in many cases, may be grant-funded and tuition-free.

We are here to assist you and answer your questions.

To register for one of our courses, call us at 732-255-0409, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday-Friday.
