Career and Technical Education Programs

Career and technical education programs can help students get a job, change careers, or improve current job skills. The career and technical programs at Pikes Peak Community College teach the skills needed to work in a business, technical, industrial, service, or health career. Our programs offer curriculum and facilities that simulate the workplace. Depending on the program and the level of training, students may choose a two-year Associate of Applied Science degree or a Certificate of Achievement that can be earned in less than two years.

All Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs operated at Pikes Peak Community College are approved by the State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education. All CTE instructors possess occupational experience and a CTE credential to teach in their area of expertise. Enrollment in Career Start is completed at the high school. Contact your high school counselor or call 502-3111 for more information.
