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.

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.

“This program has given me opportunities that I never would have dreamed of.

"I never really saw myself as a four-year university student, but I figured if I could learn something with my hands, that's something I would always with me - that knowledge."

Nobel T.
