Career Clusters

Students may select various pathways from the National Career Clusters which lead to College Promise Pathways or to career opportunities..


Articulation with Post Secondary

If you choose to attend a community college, four-year university, serve in the armed forces, or enter the work force, decisions made NOW will impact your future.  One way students can begin preparing for their future is by taking advantage of the opportunity to earn community college credits while in high school.  Receiving articulated credit means students would not have to repeat a similar course at community college.  

Qualifying students may request a transcript from the community college listing courses for which the student received articulated credit within 2- 4 months. 

Students may earn articulated credit with community colleges by meeting the following criteria:    Earn 85 or higher in selected CTE classes AND scoring 93 or above on the CTE final exam 

See Janet Barnes or Darla Goldfuss for a list of courses eligible for articulated credit.

DCCC also provided Davie students valuable onsite lab experiences using the Mobile Medical Simulation (SIM) lab and the Advanced Manufacturing mobile training lab. 

Robotic_Arm.jpgUsing a computerized mannequin, students experienced what procedures health care providers employ when diagnosing and treating a patient. They were able to listen to the mannequin’s heart and lung sounds and to take his blood pressure. The students also watched how the DCCC instructor directed the “patient” to have certain symptoms such as seizures, bleeding, sweating and crying.  

Students also took advantage of the opportunity to visit DCCC’s Mobile Manufacturing Training Lab in which they enjoyed hands on activities with computer numerically controlled (CNC), mill and lathe equipment and welding simulation. The self-contained lab has room for eight students and an instructor and can be outfitted to support other functions based on training needs. This was a return visit for the Mobile Manufacturing lab. Career and Technical Education students were able to tour the lab on October 23rd.
