There is a level of academic content and skill that is required for success in today’s career and technical, formerly known as vocational, careers. Despite the ongoing marketing of Career and Technical Education (CTE), there are many people who are not aware of the impact CTE programs provide, the career opportunities available in the state, and what North Dakota students can do after completing career and technical education and training.
February is Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month. CTE programs are available in higher education allowing graduates to get into the workforce in two years or less. Dakota College offers Agriculture Management and Technology designed for individuals who want to focus on one or more growing fields: livestock production, crop production, specialty crop production and agribusiness.
Every year, the North Dakota Nursery, Greenhouse, and Landscape Association holds a convention in the Fargo area. The association is a professional trade organization that has dedicated time and resources to advancing the horticultural industry across the state of North Dakota. The convention consists of educational and informational sessions, networking & tour opportunities, legislation updates, design contests, and resources to assist with specific businesses and aid in marketing products.
Governor Doug Burgum has proclaimed February 2023 as Career and Technical Education Month. Known for Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs, Dakota College at Bottineau provides students with the technical skills, knowledge, and attitudes necessary for successful performance in a globally competitive workplace.
