For Educators


PCAP develops and administers Integrated Career and Academic Pathways Programs, which provide contextualized classroom instruction and comprehensive services designed especially for non-traditional, adult students.

Integrated Health Careers Pathway Programs

PCAP administers a variety of career pathway programs that guide adult students who have already earned a high school diploma through the career training and transition process to ensure success in a chosen field. These courses are administered in collaboration with the Career Ladders in Allied Health and  Pre-Hospital Care Programs at LaGuardia Community College. Read an overview of our career pathway training programs here.

Integrated Central Services Technician Program (CST) The Central Service Technician Program prepares adult students for work as a central service technician in the central service department of a hospital where all equipment is sterilized and prepared for use. 

The S. A. V. E. EMT Program prepares adult students to become certified emergency medical technicians and to work in the EMT field where they will provide basic emergency care to victims of traumatic and/or medical emergencies and transport them to the appropriate medical facility.

Integrated Medical Office Clinical Technician Program  (MOCT) helps adult students returning to school develop the academic and professional competencies necessary to successfully complete MOCT training. 

Bridge to College and Careers Programs

Bridge to College and Careers Programs  serve adult students who wish to continue their education and professional development beyond earning a high school equivalency credential.  We offer programs with a focus on health, business or science.

College Transition Partnership 

With generous support from the National Center for Family Literacy (NCFL), PCAP partnered with Make the Road New York and LaGuardia's Center for Immigrant Education and Training in 2011 to expand college awareness and increase postsecondary transitions for immigrant families in Queens County, NY.  NCFL encourages and fosters the development of community organization and college partnerships to strengthen students' transition into higher education.  NCFL's En Camino/On Our Way Toolkit is designed to support families' investment in higher education.  Using the En Camino modules as a template,  PCAP, CIET and MRNY implemented  college awareness activities in ESL and Adult Literacy classrooms.
