Specialized Studies for Tomorrow’s World
At CCTEC, we believe that county vocational-technical education offers students a chance to explore various careers early and help them develop the skills they need for success in any field. Studies show that about 75 percent of New Jersey county vocational-technical school graduates go on to two- or four-year colleges, or other advanced technical training. With a strong academic and technical foundation, these students are able to make the most of college to advance their career opportunities.
