Transform Your Future

with Career and Technical Education
Triangle Arrow

Career and Technical Education (CTE) is a modern approach to higher education and training, and it can accelerate your personal and professional success. CTE is a fast, affordable way to prepare for a variety of fulfilling, stable careers with mid- to high-wage potential. With CTE, students quickly acquire skills through real-world, hands-on experience close to home, or at any one of Florida’s 47 technical colleges and 28 state colleges. 

So, whether you’re looking to learn basic skills to enter the workforce, launching a new career or reimagining your future, let us help you Get There.

Career Pathways

Learn a new skill, become an entrepreneur, or get a job and continue your education while stacking your credentials into an Associate’s, Bachelor’s, Master’s or beyond.

The first step is aligning your interests with a career pathway and choosing from hundreds of programs available. CTE programs build a strong foundation for a mid- to high-wage job – and you will get there faster and affordably as many programs are designed to be 20 weeks or less.

"I’ve gotten three certifications – the safety certification, the steering suspension and electrical. Doing this in high school is a benefit because I don’t have to pay for classes until I get to technical school. I enjoy the hands-on work. And my instructor is always encouraging and makes the class enjoyable. Everything that he does, I just pick up so quickly."

“I was 31, doing mediocre work. What inspired me to go back was my son, Noah. Now that I know better, I would definitely encourage someone to pursue either a certificate class or a two-year degree. You don’t necessarily have to start in a four-year program to get the same skills, knowledge and salary to work in a STEM career.”

— Larsha J.

"Working in a warehouse was a job. I feel like a job is for somebody coming straight out of high school. A career is your life. I wanted to change my life. I wanted my two children to see better for me. With my diploma and my training, I see my future, and I see everything coming toward me. This is really it now."
