Why learn with CTE?

It's never too late to get career ready. Here's now CTE can help you plan for a successful, rewarding future.

CTE programs and classes provide rigorous, hands-on skills training, spaces where you can use professional-grade equipment, and programs that connect you to employers. To get started, meet with your engagement center for customized advice to help turn your dreams into reality.

Leave MVC with the skills and network you need to join a well-paying, in-demand industry, right after graduation. CTE programs include associate degrees and career certificates with an occupational emphasis. Both paths provide you with the foundational skills and knowledge needed to enter a skilled or professional occupation.  

Many find it difficult to secure employment or to advance in current positions and better-paying jobs without specialized training. In the early stages of a career, employers often seek specific, technical skills like those gained by completing a certificate. Employers may even require certificates before hiring or offering higher pay.   

For even more training and experience, our apprenticeship and employment placement teams can help you find the right fit for your career, with local networks and regular events that draw employers from a number of industries.
