About the Career Preparation Center

The Career Preparation Center and Eaton RESA have partnered with LCC for over 40 years to offer career preparation programs to area high school students. 

The Career Preparation Center (CPC) is situated on the west and downtown campuses of Lansing Community College. Our office is located in Room M104 of the Lansing Community College West Campus. In this section, you can find information on programs, staffing, and the many other services that Eaton RESA provides.

Fourteen programs are located at Lansing Community College. Our "off campus" programs include Heavy Equipment at AIS Construction Company in Lansing, Animal Science and Zoo Management at Potter Park Zoo in Lansing, Insurance & Risk Management offered at Farm Bureau Insurance in Lansing, and Business Academy and Game Design & Programming Academy, offered at Davenport University in Lansing.

Students will learn a transferable skill, earn high school credit, and have an opportunity to earn actual college credit upon completion of the program. Successful graduates of our programs found employment in their program area, entered into an apprenticeship program, continued at LCC to earn an Associate's Degree, or transferred to a university to continue their education. To get started, talk to your High School Counselor. 



Explore the Possibilities. Fast Track your Future.
