Trade and Technical Skills Training

Employers that require specific trades and technical training skills are served by the Beaver County Career and Technology Center.

Established in 1978, the Center works in close collaboration with area high schools and local businesses and industry to develop programs and a curriculum aligned with emerging job opportunities.  As the regional economy transitioned from a heavy industrial manufacturing base, Beaver County CTC has expanded its role to provide adult training resources for dislocated employees and those wishing to develop new skills in high-tech and service occupations.
