Career and Technical Education


Career and Technical Education programs at NCTC are designed to prepare you for the high-demand, high-skill careers of today’s changing workplace.  It is predicted that nearly half of the job openings filled by workers with post-secondary education will go to people with an associate’s degree or an occupational certificate. Some of these jobs pay more than many of the jobs held by those with bachelor’s degrees.


Whether you are interested in a high-tech job like computer networking, a career in the healthcare industry or one of many other career fields, NCTC has one-year certificate and two-year degree programs that can enable you to walk out of the classroom and into the workforce!


Not only are NCTC students provided hands-on training from instructors who are professionals in their field, our CTE programs also build communication and critical thinking skills, both highly valued by employers.


Our programs are for those just leaving high school as well as working adults interested in upgrading their skills or making a career change.  Explore our CTE webpages and find the career that is for you!
