Adult Career and Technical Education

  • Adults can get the education and skills they need to be productive workers, family members, and citizens while in Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs. Practice, hands-on experience and application make up the bulk of our classes. This is important because CTE careers require workers to have experience in their field before starting a career. Our classes help you acquire challenging academic and technical skills and prepare for high-skill, high-wage or high-demand occupations in the 21st-century global economy.
