College Courses Approved to Meet the PCA Minimum Education Requirements
The Approved Courses page only includes courses from those colleges that submitted courses to DPR for review. If you attended a college, completed a course, or are planning to take a course that is not listed on the Approved Course page, please email DPR at PCAmail@cdpr.ca.gov with the college name, course title, course code number, course curriculum, number of semester/quarter units, and which core category you feel it belongs in. DPR will review the course information and get back to you with a determination or may request additional information.
The courses listed are those that DPR felt best complemented a PCA's typical scope of work and met the requirements of Section 6550 of the California Code of Regulations which describes the PCA minimum education qualifications.
Note: Colleges and courses may be added by DPR if applicable, or courses may be deleted if the curriculum is revised.
