Regional Occupational Centers and Programs (ROP, ROCP)

Career and workforce preparation for high school students and adults, preparation for advanced training, and the upgrading of existing skills


What is ROCP?

ROCPs provide high school students 16 years of age and older, and also adult students, with valuable career and technical education so students can (1) enter the workforce with skills and competencies to be successful, (2) pursue advanced training in postsecondary educational institutions, or (3) upgrade existing skills and knowledge.


Please note that with the introduction of Career Technical Education, many ROCPs are closing or changing their names to align more closely with CTE.
