Hello, and welcome to OCPS’ Career and Technical Education Department! OCPS CTE, including the districts’ Orange Technical College, has demonstrated a proven and rich tradition of changing lives through education through technical training. Our singular focus is supporting our students in achieving their professional goals and connecting them to their field of interest. We deeply understand that there is more than one way to a great career, and we are here to help students get to where they want to go.

I invite you to take a deep dive into the career and technical education and credentialing programs we offer throughout district schools, all of which lead to viable employment opportunities locally in high-skill, in-demand careers. And, our programs help students reach their goals without the burden of excessive debt or cost. Whether students want to earn credentials in construction, transportation, healthcare, advanced manufacturing, information technology, or welding, CTE is a great way to jumpstart a career.

I appreciate your time as you explore the career opportunities available and look forward to supporting you in reaching your goals!
