What Our Graduates Are Saying Accordion Closed
“I was apprehensive about finding a quality program with credibility that could be done through distance learning as we know that there are plenty available minus the credibility. The M.Ed. CTE program was very challenging and really stretched me in my profession, yet I never missed a family moment or an all important little league game.”
“I can’t tell you how much easier the process of opening and operating a private welding school has been thanks to what I learned while in the program.”
~ Dan Londo
