The School of Health, Wellness & Public Safety (HWPS) is committed to providing a positive learning experience to improve, enrich and expand opportunities in students’ lives. HWPS provides both entry and advanced level training and skill upgrading in a variety of health care, wellness, public safety and community service fields that lead to certificates and associate degrees upon completion of program requirements. Credit programs range in length from 12 weeks to 20 months. Most programs have prerequisite and required courses that must be completed with a grade of C or better. Although some of the HWPS programs are open enrollment, many of the programs require an application process for admission. Classes are held at the Main, Montoya, South Valley, Westside campuses and CNM Workforce Training Center as well as at various community agency sites. Students may experience supervised clinical, practicum or internship training at community agencies and organizations.
