Classes are conducted using one or more of the following methods:

Classroom-only
Learning takes place in a classroom setting with hands-on skills training using industry-standard equipment. Learn more about classroom locations.

Community Classroom (CC)
Community Classroom is a combination fo classroom instruction and unpaid on-the-job training at businesses or agency sites.
 

Cooperative Vocational Education (CVE)
Cooperative Vocational Education is a combination of classroom instruction, and paid on-the-job training.  Students enrolled in CVE courses must be employed in a related industry.


Credit

Students earn high school credit for classes.  Credits are issued by the high school.

Each student who satisfactorily completes an ROP class receives an ROP Letter of Competency explaining what skills/competencies the student learned in the class.  Students can request a letter of competency from the registrar in the Student Information Services for each core competency.

Articulation

Articulation is a formal agreement that connects sequenced courses between ROP and community college.  High School students who successfully complete an articulated course may receive credit and/or skip the Intro level course at the community college level.

North Orange County ROP has entered into articulation agreements with several local community colleges. More >
