Career and Technical Education

Welcome to Feather River College’s Career and Technical Education Program. CTE aims to get students work experience and teach technical skills that will help students get hired as soon as they graduate. CTE is a combination of practical project-based learning and academic topics that relate to the industry area the student is interested in. When a student follows a CTE pathway, they graduate with a vocational certificate or degree, and a wealth of hands-on experience that makes them ready to start working right out of the gates.
