Welcome to the Southern California Regional Occupational Center, also known as SoCal ROC.
We are the leaders in providing current and relevant Career Technical Education programs that are meeting today’s job demands and careers of the future! Part of the California public school system, our programs are offered to high schools students as well as adults in the South Bay and surrounding communities.
We understand the importance of not only providing our students with theory-based instruction but the opportunity to apply that knowledge through “hands-on” learning activities. Many of the programs offered at SoCal ROC also offer on-the-job training or extern components as well.
There is a difference between just having a job versus doing something for which you have a passion and can earn a good living. SoCal ROC’s programs and career pathways will provide you with the quality educational experiences that will tap into your passion and open doors to exciting career opportunities. I am thrilled that you have chosen SoCal ROC to pursue your career interest. I know you will understand very quickly why our motto is “Education with a Purpose!”
