The Regional Occupational Program (ROP), also known as Career Technical Education (CTE), offers tuition-free career preparation training in 138 occupations throughout the Sacramento area. Programs include high demand training such as automotive, construction, office computer skills, information technology training (database design, Web authoring, network administration, and computer repair), health occupations (nurse assistant, dental assistant, EMT, etc.), retail sales, careers with children and other occupational areas.
Most of the training is offered on a high school campus and has an "on-the-job" internship at an employer job site in addition to the classroom training. Contact your local high school for courses near you.
Adults seeking job training should contact one of the following programs:
- Elk Grove Adult Education (916) 686-7717
- Sacramento City Unified Adult Education (916) 433-2600
- San Juan Adult Education (916) 971-7399
Participants are mostly high school students with limited spaces for adults. Fingerprinting is required for adult students to participate on high school campuses during school hours.
Partners include Sacramento area employers, Los Rios Community College District, Sacramento County Department of Human Assistance, Sacramento Employment and Training Agency (SETA), and Sacramento-Sierra Building & Trades Council.
