Why take CTE?
Experience is the best teacher. CTE can help you get the experience needed to get a job of your choice, help you upgrade your skills or train in a completely new field. You may have the opportunity to actually do your training in a community-based business.
Who can enroll?
Adults will be registered on a space-available and a first-come, first-served basis. Adults interested in health-related courses are required to complete a general ability assessment prior to registration. See Related-Health Course Eligibility Information listed below.
How much does the training cost?
Adults pay registration, material, and book fees to enroll. Students may incur additional costs for uniforms, protective equipment, supplies, medical/legal clearances, and state certification exams as required by the specific courses of study. Adult fees are payable by money order only. Vouchers are also accepted from government agencies. For refund and class cancellation policies refer to your registration payment receipt.
What do I get when I finish my training?
Upon successful demonstration of competency, you will receive a Certificate of Training. The certificate and accompanying competency list will verify your employability in the area of training.
What career guidance services does CTE provide?
The CTE Student Services Representative (SSR) provides career guidance. Adults should contact the CTE Admissions Office for information.
How are CTE classes taught?
CTE training is given in actual business/industry locations or classrooms equipped to industry standards. Classes are a combination of classroom instruction and on-the-job training taught by professionals in the industry who are credentialed by the State of California to teach in their areas of expertise.
Can I get credit for taking CTE classes?
Some CTE courses offer the opportunity for advance placement and/or credit at local community colleges. Please check individual course descriptions for details and/or ask your instructor for articulation details.
Will I get a job?
Your CTE course will include job search skills. While you are not assured a job, our placement rate is generally very high.
