How it works/Contact

How it works

OCtech classes are offered in 7-week terms, which means you’ll take fewer classes at one time. This helps you to focus better and not get overwhelmed.

Classes are offered in online and hybrid formats.

Online classes:

Attend online classes from home on your schedule. You still have easy access to your instructors, and the course material covered and due dates are the same as those for in-person classes.

Hybrid classes:

These classes are a mix of in-person classes and online sessions. In-person classes will meet in the evenings, usually between 5:30 and 8:00 pm.


These certificates are designed to give you the skills you need to begin your new job on day one. Our labs have “open hours” for you to meet with your instructor and gain hands-on experience.
