Did you know that many high-paying careers don’t require a 4-year college degree? We invite you to explore our programs, meet some of our faculty, and take a virtual tour of our exciting instructional labs.
Laney College is your personal gateway to a wonderful career. The number of careers in technical fields is growing rapidly and the opportunities are plentiful.

At Laney, our CTE programs are constantly on the move, tracking industry trends and updating our classes and programs so that you will learn the cutting-edge skills of the future.
