Adult students who participate in effective CTE programs will graduate with industry certifications or licenses that employers can use to make hiring decisions.  These students are positioned to become the areas next machinists, welders, construction  trade workers and certified nursing assistants.   These individuals  are empowered to pursue future schooling and training as their educational and career needs evolve. This program will be an affordable route for individuals seeking career retraining and success.
