Career Technical Education

Overview

What is Career Technical Education?

Career Technical Education (CTE) provides students of all ages with the academic and technical skills, knowledge, and training necessary to succeed in future careers and become lifelong learners. CTE is filled with various programs that make students career-ready once they complete their time at Long Beach City College. Some programs require as little as three classes. Some programs take two years. Many industries are looking for these highly skilled graduates where labor demand is high.

Let CTE be your partner in accomplishing your education and employment goals. Whether you’re a high school graduate looking to enter the workforce, want to transfer to a four-year college or university, take some classes to upgrade your existing skills and be in tune with new technology to increase your earning power, or you want to change careers altogether – it’s all possible at LBCC’s School of Career Technical Education.

Our teachers are pros in their fields with years of practical experience, and our industry partners keep us up to date on new technology and job opportunities. That means our curriculum is always current, our graduates know where labor demand is high and good-paying jobs are available. Today, options for employment are limitless. As our world becomes more dependent on technology, the demand for skilled technical employees will continue to increase.
