CTE Programs

 
Career Technical Education (CTE)
 
Mission: To provide industry-linked programs and services that enable all individuals to reach their career goals in order to achieve economic self-sufficiency, compete in the global marketplace, and contribute to California's economic prosperity.
 
Career Technical Education (CTE) at Santa Monica College (SMC) prepares students for entry level professional employment opportunities, typically within one to four semesters. CTE programs prepare students for entry into the workforce in their specific fields. Upon completion, students leave SMC with a wide range of knowledge: theoretical, hands-on, applied and experiential.
