2022 Fall Open House a Success

Each year the Career Tech Center opens its doors to the public for an Open House. Tours are provided to visit all of the Career Tech Programs and visitors can see the students in action as they work on their skills for the future.

"Career and technology education can give your child what’s needed to succeed for life: technical skills, academic skills and employability skills. In addition, career and technical education helps students see how what they’re learning applies to the needs of employers.

Regardless of whether students are headed for college or the workforce, this type of education will help them prepare for the future. In fact, college-bound students can get job experiences to help them define their career plans, identify an appropriate course of study and help pay for tuition."

What is a Credential

Listing a credential on your resume states to employers that you have learned a specific educational or work-related skill set.

Credentials often involve training and assessments to verify that you are qualified to work in a specific type of job or study in a certain academic field. 

Some credentials are “industry-recognized,” which means they are endorsed by a nationally recognized trade association or organization.

Credentials are offered in many areas. Please see individual departments for details.
