Career and Technical Education

Honolulu Community College has established itself as the premier career and technical training center in the state of Hawaiʻi. Twenty-three programs are offered that span the fields of transportation, trades, communication, and services. Each of the programs maintains strong ties with industry through the use of industry advisory committees. These committees regularly review the curriculum to insure that students receive the best training possible. Industry also supports the programs through the donation of state-of-the-art equipment for training. Many of Honolulu CC's program facilities and training equipment are world class. Where appropriate, programs also hold local and national certifications and some have been awarded national recognition.
