Frequently asked questions:
Why should students take Career Technical Education (CTE) courses?

CTE courses are sequenced to create pathways for students in a course of study which can lead to  employment and/or post-secondary education opportunities.


How are CTE classes taught?

CTE classes are conducted in classrooms equipped to industry standards, or in some cases, actual business and industry locations.


Can a student get credit for taking CTE classes?

CTE offers many UC a-g approved courses.  Some are articulated with the local community colleges and offer students the opportunity for post-secondary credit.


What is an articulated course?

An Articulated Course is one in which the high school teacher and the college faculty have “formally agreed” that the high school course outline, syllabus, textbook, midterm, and/or final exam are comparable to those in a course of the same major at college and that the final exam score will be used as a credit-by-exam for the comparable college course.


Will I get a job?

Your CTE course will include employment job search skill. Many courses offer internships and on-the-job training with local businesses.



CTE Course Sequencing


Students must complete a full pathway in order to receive pathway credit.  Pathways consist of introductory, concentrator, and capstone courses.  Pathways with three courses must complete all three courses.


Introductory Course -  A CTE beginning level introductory course that contains introductory concepts required to build foundational and general knowledge.


Concentrator Course - A CTE course beyond the introductory level that is intended to provide more in-depth instruction and exploration of a specific industry sector.


Capstone Course - The final course in a planned sequence of courses that provides a rigorous and intensive culmination of a course study.
