Career and Technical Education

Truckee Meadows Community College offers the most extensive selection of Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses in northern Nevada. Emphasizing hands-on skills, the CTE programs offer Skills Certificates, Certificates of Achievement and AAS degrees in a diversity of subjects that are responsive to the priorities established by the Governor’s Office of Economic Development’s Industry Sector Councils as well as regional/local sectors.

Advisory committees consisting of local industry professionals monitor each program and provide guidance to ensure skills being taught meet employer expectations. As a result, graduates are well prepared for professional employment and are highly recruited for positions across northern Nevada.

Start in High School

TMCC's partnership with school districts also gives high school students the opportunity to earn college credit before they enter college. The Tech Prep/CTE College Credit program grants college credit to eligible high school students completing approved Career and Technical Education (CTE) elective classes. The CTE elective classes are taught by high school teachers in the high school. Tech Prep/CTE College Credit students earn the credit for free saving not only time, but a significant amount of money.
