CTE Student Organizations

Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSO’s) are student member organizations aligned to career clusters.

Industry certifications are an important component of Career and Technical Education Programs of Study as demonstrated evidence of technical skill attainment.

We provide a broad array of current academic and career-oriented programs designed to connect directly to the real world of business, industry and technology.

In Switzerland, even though university education is free, the vast majority of students opt for CTE training instead.

And so, common core standards for CTE are not becoming irrelevant!
