An innovative schedule enables students to spend one half of their day at their home schools earning core credits and participating in sports, clubs, and music. The second half of their day is spent on the CTEC campus. CTEC’s state-of-the-art building is designed to allow for hands-on practical training in manufacturing, computer science, construction crafts, and the medical fields. AT no financial cost, each program provides opportunities for students to earn industry-based certificates and provide either dual enrollment or articulated credits toward associate degrees at BRCC. Based on the career filed chosen, some classes are also transferable to four-year universities. Upon completion, those students who earn industry-based certificates will be able to move directly into the workforce. Student organizations include Health Occupations Students of America (designed to promote career opportunities in the healthcare industry) and Skills USA (a career and technical student organization). Specific Trades offered at CTEC include: Carpentry, Electrical, HVAC, Networking, EMT, Pre-LPN, and Cyber-Security.
