Course Report

Program Requirements Narrative

The program change is only to remove CE 100 as a degree requirement.  CE 100 has been difficult to obtain (direct work experience in the public safety workplace) due to COVID 19 restrictions and caused faculty to rethink the requirement.  This lowered the total required units from 36 to 33.

Palomar College submitted the appropriate LMI from the COE. The COE recommends proceeding with developing a program or a program modification because 1) the occupations’ entry-level and median earnings are above the living wage and 2) a supply gap exists.
