Work Experience Courses
Work Experience courses enable students to earn and learn. They support the educational benefits of work and give students the opportunity to earn college credit while working in supervised employment.
The California Virtual Campus-Online Education Initiative has recognized LPC’s WRKX courses as meeting the highest standards for online courses in the California Community College system.
- Work in a part-time or full-time, paid or unpaid position.
- In collaboration with your work supervisor and instructor, create learning objectives you will accomplish during the semester.
- Learn 21st century work skills.
- Work 75 paid hours or 60 unpaid hours per unit in these variable-unit courses.
- Attend one one-hour synchronous online orientation and do the rest of the work at your workplace and in the asynchronous online course, which requires much less time than most other college courses.
