CTE programs are designed to prepare students for careers and for transfer to a four-year college. The programs have a variety of entry and exit points which, to the extent possible, are aligned with industry position and skill needs. Our CTE programs strive to be connected to local industry to ensure that students are learning the skills and knowledge the industry needs. In addition, we provide some specialty courses that are helpful for those already in the field to upskill for currency or promotion.
Our programs combine classroom instruction and practical application training in a laboratory environment. Students can earn certificates and degree qualifying them to enter highly skilled employment.
Whether you are a new student or life-long learner, our programs have something ready to offer you.
Our talented faculty members combine their years of experience working in private industry with educational excellence in the classroom setting.
The program pages can provide you with specific information relative to each program.
Please note some career tech ed classes can be found in other NVC divisions. Please see Health Occupations (HEOC), Criminal Justice Training Center (CJT), or Counseling (COUN - Human Services) for more information on programs in those fields.
