Degree, Certificate and Transfer Programs at OCC
Paraprofessional Educator (EDU)
The intent of the Paraprofessional Educator AAS degree and certificate is to prepare both the current and future paraprofessional educator/teacher’s aide. The AAS degree and certificate are designed for immediate employment, but include a number of courses that could transfer to a baccalaureate degree-granting institution.
This curriculum will prepare graduates for jobs as paraprofessionals or teachers’ aides, special education aides for the K-12 school systems, preschool aides for school districts with pre-K classes, and early childhood aides for day/child care centers. Also, the way in which the curricula are designed for a progression or career ladder will enable students to continue their education toward a baccalaureate teaching certificate.
