Career Technical Education (CTE)

Four students proudly hold and display their course certificate of completion.

​​​​​​Career Technical Education

The Career Technical Education (CTE) Program, formerly Vocational Business Skills,  prepares students for the workforce by providing technical and life skills that meet current employer demands. Students learn on how to search, obtain, and maintain employment.

Classes are offered in a teacher directed or lab setting. The lab setting is ideal for students that prefer to learn more independently and at their own pace. Instruction is available in Spanish and Vietnamese languages. Students can take a computer class or complete a series of classes to obtain one or more State of California Approved Certificates.

We offer classes at Centennial Education Center and other community sites throughout the City of Santa Ana. Hours of operation for Centennial Education Center are the following:

Monday thru Thursday 8am-9pm

Friday & Saturday 8am-12pm
