HOUSTON, TX — This summer, San Jacinto College offers 3-week courses, which are designed to help students explore careers in health care or computer technology. This course is at no cost.

Through these courses, students can get hands-on learning, field trips, industry presentations, team building, and earn a credential. This program will begin on July 6.

The class will meet 40 hours every week. Students who participate and give feedback will receive a $300 stipend after finishing the course.

In the Health Care Career, students can explore a wide variety of career pathways, such as nursing, pharmacy technician, phlebotomy, emergency medical technician, medical laboratory technician, occupational therapy assistant, and more. Students also earn an Emergency Medical Responder certification.

In the Computer Technology Careers, students can explore careers including website design, software development, cybersecurity, networking, and more. Students will get an IT Fundamentals certification.
