Programs Designed for Your Success
Carrington College believes that when it comes to career training, there needs to be an effective balance between classroom learning and practical experience. Classroom learning is vital—however, theoretical knowledge can only take you so far, and a comprehensive learning experience should include working with the tools and technologies found in the industry. Where possible, Carrington College also strives to provide opportunities to go out into the world, apply your skills, and learn what it takes to make it in your chosen field.
For this reason, the majority of programs are typically organized into three different segments:
- Classroom/Theoretical Training—This portion involves formal lectures and theoretical/textbook learning.
- Practical Training—This component can include hands-on activities, and training with industry-related tools, technologies, and equipment.
- Real-World Experience—The majority of programs include an externship, clinical, or fieldwork component within an off-campus location.
Where applicable, the programs also integrate preparation for national certification examinations and licensing.*
