CAREER & TECHNICAL EDUCATION

The Career & Technical Education (CTE) at El Camino College prepares students for employment (Entry Pathway) or for future education (Skilled and Professional Pathways) in a career major or concentration. CTE courses are occupationally specific and technical in nature. There are 33 occupational programs offered at El Camino College. If you are uncertain about a career direction, our career counselors can assist you to find the path that fits your talents and interests.

Courses are taught by professionals who are experts in their field. Their expertise ensures that students receive an intensive, hands-on educational experience. Instructors also work with students to seek employment, often before the course ends.

CTE students learn how to compete in today's workplace, while learning valuable skills vital to their career advancement. A strong work ethic is reinforced, along with dedicated workmanship.

CTE offers programs for all kinds of students, from high school graduates looking to start a career, to those who want to work toward transferring to a four-year college or university. Many students enroll in courses to upgrade their skills or develop new ones for different positions in the workforce.

Today, options for employment are limitless. As our world becomes more dependent on technology, the demand for skilled technical employees will continue to increase.
