Orange County Health Care Career Transitions - Fast Track to Success (OCHC2T)

Continued growth in healthcare, along with the promise of high-wage, high-skill jobs, is leading to increased opportunities in the field of allied health. Fast Track to Success will prepare dislocated and TAA affected workers for transition to meaningful employment in high demand allied health careers. This project will enhance and streamline existing allied health training programs and develop new programs to respond to emerging career opportunities resulting from the Affordable Care Act. The Orange County Health Care Career Transitions (OCHC2T) program will deliver an innovative Health Career Readiness program and utilize cutting-edge technology to streamline and enhance allied health training programs. The Health Career Readiness program will address sector specific basic skills through a contextualized approach to medical mathematics, professional communication, medical terminology, critical thinking, career transition planning, and study skills to enhance student success and improve retention and reduce time to completion of training. The health career readiness component will be available through traditional face-to-face methods as well as online, self-paced, modular instruction. While these new programs will initially be implemented at the main campus of Saddleback College, they will ultimately be based at the $107 million Advanced Technology and Education Park on 68 acres of a repurposed Marine Corps Air Station in Tustin, California. This South Orange County Community College District project will include a Center for Innovation in Healthcare Education which will provide training for TAA-eligible workers and other adults throughout the region.
