       A Tech Prep program meets all of the technical requirements at CTC and the sending school provides all of the academic requirements.  The cooperative education program allows outstanding students to explore actual work experience in their selected field.  This is a one-year opportunity for Seniors who have been recommended by their career and technical education instructor and their sending school.  The work experience is designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of the actual employment setting and apply the techniques, skills, and academics gained throughout their educational experience.
