Career & Technical
Welcome to Career & Technical Education (CTE) at Colorado Mountain College!
What is ‘Career & Technical Education’ (CTE)?
Career and technical education (CTE) refers to degrees and certificates designed to prepare you for immediate employment opportunities upon graduation in a specific career. Training is hands-on and utilizes state-of-the-art equipment, software and facilities. In addition to having a majority of instructors who maintain occupations within their field of expertise, many of the career and technical education programs also feature internship or work experience components; these factors help to ensure your training focuses on real-world applications. Through collaboration with industry leaders, career and technical education will provide you with the right mix of skills, training and knowledge to make you highly competitive in the job market.
The CTE programs at Colorado Mountain College consist of our Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees, and Certificates of Occupational Proficiency (COP). Many of these degrees have pathways that provide a student the opportunity to also complete a four-year degree.
