Military Contract Education

About Us

San Diego Community College District's Military Contract Education program maintains distinction as one of our nation’s top providers of education and training to the Department of Defense and other government agencies while supporting local military and their families in pursuit of higher education.

Since 1977, our Military Contract Education Department has been providing technical training to the Navy. The training has included courses in Administration, Supply, Combat Systems, Engineering, Electronics, Personal Financial Management, Instructor Training, Avionics, Leadership, and Seamanship. In addition, SDCCD has provided more advanced courses including Military "A" and "C" Schools, Culinary Arts, Air Traffic Control, and Fundamental Applied Skills.

In providing contract instructional services over the past 40+ years, SDCCD has supported over 35 military contracts totaling more than $400 million. The successful implementation and operation of these programs reflects our clear understanding of the military environment, the ability to manage large and small-scale contract programs, and expertise in providing military instruction.
