With advanced training in a number of areas, these workers are filling positions of need for employers in sectors ranging from manufacturing to distribution and healthcare to agriculture.
For businesses, this makes it is easier to find workers with the skills and expertise needed in critical positions. Credentials earned through CTE are industry recognized, so employers know that the skills possessed by graduates meet required standards.
