Career & Technical Programs (CTE) Can Help You Get The Job You Want

  • Learn more about fields you are interested in. Check out these online tools to connect your interests to potential careers and find related training programs:
  • Consider Washington’s outstanding public community and technical colleges. Students at community and technical colleges can train to enter into a job directly, take classes that will transfer to a four-year college, or pursue an applied bachelor's degree in a specific career field.
  • Research any schools or programs you are considering. For private career schools in particular, confirm the school’s licensure status and look into its reputation.

Whatever you choose to do, remember that Washington College Grant can help pay for education, job training, and approved apprenticeships. Explore your options and plan your future on the WSAC website.
