In Fall 2016 the Business & Computer Studies Division (BCS) & the Technical Division (TECH) were combined into one division, Career Tech Ed (CTE)!
Career Tech Ed. programs are designed to prepare students for careers in fields including accounting, business, child & family studies, computer studies, digital design & graphics technology, hospitality, machine tool technology, office administration, viticulture & winery technology, welding technology, and work experience.
Our programs combine classroom instruction and practical application training in a laboratory environment. Students are offered the option of obtaining a certificate or degree qualifying them to enter highly skilled employment. To the left are program pages for each department that will list more information on each program, program staff, and certificate & degree options.
Students may also enroll in individual courses, which focus on specialized topics. Our talented faculty members combine their years of experience working in private industry with educational excellence in the classroom setting.
Whether you are a new student or life-long learner, our programs have something ready to offer you.
Please note some career tech ed classes can be found in other NVC divisions. Please see Health Occupations (HEOC), Criminal Justice Training Center (CJT), or Counseling (COUN - Human Services) for more information on programs in those fields.
