What is The Career Education Center-ROP?
The Career Education Center-ROP (CEC-ROP) is a public education service that provides hands-on career preparation. CEC-ROP is designed to provide students with the technical skills required for particular jobs. Community-based internships in local businesses and industry sites are offered in many classes. Every course offers a unit on employment seeking skills, which includes the job application, resume, and interview preparation.
Who is eligible?
Courses are open to all high school juniors, seniors, persons 16 years of age or older, and to adults. Priority is given to high school seniors then juniors, and then adults.
What is the cost to High School students?
Ventura County CEC-ROP is a state funded educational program; therefore, there is no tuition for high school students.

Where are the CEC-ROP classes located?
CEC-ROP classes meet at the campus located in the area of the Camarillo Airport, local high schools, and business and industry sites. After basic classroom instruction, every attempt will be made to provide internships near the student’s home, high school, or CEC-ROP class sites.
Are you paid while in an Career Education-ROP class?
Because the Career Education-ROP is a career preparation program, students are not paid while enrolled in class. (Students receive high school elective credit and on-the-job experience.)
What is an internship?
Students in the majority of our classes will be placed with a on-the-job training site. Each student (with teacher assistance) will acquire a potential intern site for further training and supervised practical experience. During this phase of training, students will have an opportunity to apply skills they have learned in the classroom. Students will be exposed to the realism of the work environment in an industry related to their training. Employers indicate that this phase of training is an essential part of preparing students for employment. Experience has demonstrated that a student’s chance of obtaining gainful employment is greatly increased by the internship phase of the program.
Can you earn high school credits in a CEC-ROP class?
Upon successful completion of a CEC-ROP course, elective credit may be issued and applied toward high school graduation.
