UAA Community & Technical College Celebrates CTE Month®

February is Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month®, part of a nationwide celebration championed by the Association for Career and Technical Education. CTE prepares students for a wide range of high-wage, high-skill, high-demand careers in Alaska. It is at the core of the UAA Community & Technical College’s (CTC) academic programs, which are integral to key state industries such as aviation, automotive, construction, hospitality, information technology, oil and gas, and occupational safety.

Gov. Bill Walker underscored the benefits of career and technical education for the state in a formal proclamation effective Jan. 26, 2016. Throughout the month, CTC will feature stories on our social media accounts about the value of career and technical education to our students, staff, faculty and industry partners.
