It was a great mixture of hands on and class work Training that was challenging at times but worth the effort I learned some unique skills in the building trades. The print reading class for me was really Interesting and challenging at the same time. Our OSHA 30 class was informative and an eye opener frankly for anyone wanting to get into the construction field or just receive information on it I’d highly suggest the Pre-apprenticeship program at Diablo Valley College.

Due to me residing in Vallejo, CA. Solano County & going to Contra Costa County community college. I opted for this even though Napa had an award winning nursing program, because being a Nurse was never my first choice and Solano community college didn't coffee the dental programs that D.V.C. did in 1998. I also received a $500 Solano Scholarship award towards my dental assistant program feels i.e., books, units or transportation needs.

Cons

Politically and economically governed at the expense of students.

Other comments

A good school but ebbs and flows with the political tide. Back in 1981 for example DVC decided that their technical programs needed to be more "well rounded" so they arbitrarily added a humanities requirement to all. This changed every two year full time program to two years full time plus one semester class. A great many full time students suddenly found themselves unable to receive their Associate degree after two years as a full time student. They could return for a semester of a third year or do without their '2-year's degree. No advance notice was provided to students who were completing two years as a full time student in 1981, diligently following the curriculum established by DVC to receive their Associate after two years.
