The Oklahoma CareerTech System helps Oklahomans succeed in their careers. Programs in sixth through 12th grades in more than 500 public schools prepare students for careers and further education. Adults take advantage of offerings at Technology Centers, in Skills Centers (programs for offenders) and at businesses — both small and large.
It takes a skilled workforce to bring big ideas to life, and Oklahoma’s economic development is no different. IT professionals, CAD drafters, designers, fabricators, welders, masons, electricians and HVAC technicians – they’re all needed to build a business from the ground up. CareerTech’s blueprint generates new infrastructure, creates jobs, expands the economy and produces the fuel that powers Oklahoma’s economic engine.

Why do so many Oklahomans support CareerTech’s programming and Business and Industry Services? The results speak for themselves.
In 2016 alone, more than half a million Oklahomans were taught and trained in our statewide CareerTech System. More than 94 percent of them went on to complete additional training or assume professional roles.
