    Have you ever thought about pursuing a career in the Allied Health field? CBC offers several Allied Health programs for dual enrollment students. Dual credit courses are available with the various programs. Check with your high school counselor for all the details. 

    Here are some of the programs that offered for high school students:

    EMT (Coming Soon)

    Medical Coding 

    Medication Aid Assistant 

    Pharmacy Technician (Coming Soon)

    High schools students begin working on a Marketable Skills Achievement Award in these programs and work their way through the Allied Health pathway to a degree at Coastal Bend College. All the courses can be carry over into the next step of the pathway, so you are saving time and money. 

    These programs can be offered through our Continuing Education program, which means the student recieves a Continuing Education Unit which could later be converted to college credit. Also, along with your Marketable Skills Award, you will also have the opportunity to take the state exam to become licensed in your area of study.
