A-22 (CDE Codes) and CIP Codes are used to identify the course you are offering to students.
A-22 Code (CDE Code) : this is a code used by the California Department of Education (CDE) to identify the courses / curriculum you offer. The CDE codes can be found on the CDE Family and Consumer Sciences website under resources. Here's the URL for the list of CTE course code definitions. https://ca-fcs.org/images/resources/CALPADS_CTE_2021-22_Users_Guide.pdf
CIP Code: this is a code used and developed by the U.S. Department of Education. The CIP code is "Classification of Instructional Programs" from the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics. The community colleges use this to identify courses offered. If the adult school aligns courses with the community college partners, they can use this to tie them together.
