Idaho Career & Technical Education is responsible for the secondary, postsecondary, and adult career & technical programs delivered throughout Idaho’s public school districts and six technical colleges: College of Western Idaho, College of Southern Idaho, College of Eastern Idaho, Idaho State University, Lewis-Clark State College, and North Idaho College. We also facilitate collaboration between industry and public education to offer Workforce Training. These programs are short term, non-credit, cost friendly classes designed for individuals looking to upgrade training, increase their skills, or for industry to create custom classes for their employees.
There are a number of related areas we oversee in Idaho including Adult Education, GED®, and Centers for New Directions.
