Providing you with what you need to succeed.

C-TEC is more than just an outstanding educational resource in Licking County. Our dedicated instructors and counselors are here to provide you with the guidance, coaching and training you need for success in the real world.

We understand what it’s like to head into the competitive job market for the first time; or take on new responsibilities at work; or even the intimidation of completing your GED®. What it comes down to is we understand people and we understand education. Together, that spells success. Let us help you make it happen!

Learning Disabilities and Admission

Students with significant and documented learning disabilities may be admitted on the basis of a post-high-school Individual Education Plan (IEP). The IEP establishes a viable set of occupational goals and the competencies the student will be expected to achieve during his/her training in order to meet those occupational goals. The student will be evaluated on the basis of the IEP, not the goals set for the training program. An IEP is arranged in a meeting of the assessment coordinator, instructor, program supervisor, student, and any representative the student desires.
