Ready to Start a Career?
Career Technical Education (CTE) programs provide knowledge and training for a wide variety of occupations that demand education beyond high school.
You can prepare for employment by completing a two-year Associate degree in applied sciences or by completing a short-term certificate program. In many career fields, this training may enhance your employment opportunities by providing you with industry certifications that employers desire. To be sure that CTE programs are right for you, please meet with a career coach to discuss your education and career goals. In any case, please explore our CTE program offerings below.
