Step Inside the Career & Technology Education Centers
C-TEC is where thousands of high school students and adults in central Ohio have gained the knowledge, training, leadership skills and confidence for successful and productive futures. For over 40 years, we have continually provided value for our students, employers and the economy of Licking and surrounding counties. We continue to be a valuable part of the educational and economic health of our community.
Through our secondary and satellite programs, high school students can explore dozens of programs which help them meet their career goals and interests, as well as provide the pathways for post-secondary education. The multidimensional approach in career technical education is proven —providing experience-based learning, interactive and team building skills, and real-world work opportunities. Many of our programs offer the opportunity to earn college credits—at little or no cost, through agreements with local community colleges, college credit plus opportunities, and state-wide career-technical transfer credit assurances.
Additionally, 27 of our secondary and satellite programs allow students to earn business and industry credentials. These certifications and licensures — Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy (OPOTA), State Test for Nursing Assistants (STNA), Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) and CompTIA A+, Microsoft certification and many, many more—put students ahead of the competition in the work world and in college.
Our Adult Education Center serves over 4,000 students each year and is a University System of Ohio provider. A few examples of programs include medical coding, pharmacy technician, machining, computer technology, office technology, welding, horticulture and many, many more. Recently, through agreements with area colleges, we have added college credit options to some of our adult programs.
We partner with city economic development teams and businesses to ensure local companies and merchants have professionally trained employees. We are a vital part of the structure and development of Licking County and we take that seriously. We keep this county educated and working.
