The Community College of Allegheny County provides a supportive and transformative learning environment that prepares graduates to meet critical needs in the region’s workforce.
At CCAC, we believe that life outside the classroom is an important part of your college experience. Each CCAC campus has a variety of activities to enhance your lifestyle – including athletics, cultural events and personal development seminars.
The CCAC Educational
Foundation is the fundraising and benefactor arm of the college. It seeks to
create vital connections between the college and the wider community
to ensure the ongoing viability of the college.
CCAC’s classroom at the Energy Innovation Center features current, industry-standard equipment. The hands-on learning space utilizes both a classroom and laboratory setting, allowing students to immediately sharpen their newly learned skills. Students can choose from two areas of instruction: Solar and Renewable Energy or Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning/Refrigeration. Both subjects are taught by instructors with real-world expertise in these high-demand areas. Credit and noncredit Skilled Trades courses are currently offered at the EIC. Credit courses can be used towards a certificate or degree, while noncredit classes provide immediate vocational skills.
