BFET Eligible Programs

Associate of Technical Arts Degrees

Associate of Technical Arts (ATA) degrees are designed to provide professional and technical training to prepare students for specific jobs or to improve existing skills. All of our career programs have advisory committees of professionals in related fields to help ensure that our curriculum evolves with changes in business and industry. Advisory committee members and faculty members work together to link education and employment and help students succeed.

Check out Associate of Technical Arts Degree options.


Certificates are shorter programs and are designed to provide specialized training and skills in a number of interest areas. 

Check out Certificate options.

Additional note: Any student seeking BFET support for an Allied Health program must pass a national background check. The current employment environment indicates that an offense on your background may disqualify you for placement in a clinical externship and subsequent employment. 

Please note the Practical Nurse Certificate program (326A) has specific application requirements, work history, and prerequisite course work. See the Allied Health Department for details.

The PRE-NURSING direct transfer program in Nursing is not BFET-eligible.

At the completion of the ATA or certificate program, a student in BFET is expected to obtain employment.
