High School Career Technical Education (CTE) programs offer certification and hands-on training while students are still in high school. Many students work part-time or secure full-time work upon graduation. Workplaces will often provide additional on the job training through apprenticeships, internships or by paying for certificate and degree programs at area community colleges or 4 year colleges at no cost to the employee. Career technical education graduates receive a high school diploma and can go on for more training, 2 year or 4 year college degrees in their field of interest.
