The Value of CareerTech

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.
