Welcome to the Division of Business, Professional and Technology Education The Division is a regional leader in the development and delivery of courses leading to professional certifications, certificates or associate degrees. Our philosophy is that if the Coastal Bend is to compete in a global economy, we must provide the market with a highly skilled workforce with the necessary post-secondary credentials and skills. We strive to meet your needs with courses that are convenient, relevant, realistic, and professionally designed and delivered. Courses are offered during the day, night, weekends, on-line, and at off-site locations. It is our intent to create a learning atmosphere that stimulates creativity, productivity and learning. We maintain strong ties with business, industry, government agencies, and four-year colleges and universities to ensure our professional knowledge is up-to-date and our courses are relevant and reflect the “real world”. Our instructors provide the learning opportunities which help students to update their skills in career or occupational fields. These instructors teach from both their academic preparation as well as their extensive professional and workforce experience. Most continue as practitioners in their disciplines whether it is accountancy, business consulting, business technology, computer information systems, law enforcement, nursing, occupational safety, etc. If you are seeking to gain new job skills to enter the work force, change careers, or to transfer to a four-year institution, you will be well equipped after studying at Del Mar College. Many students will start their course work at Del Mar because of its high quality instruction, lab facilities and more affordable tuition and fees. If you have any comments, questions, or concerns, my door is always open.
