The Career and Technical Education Division represents instructional programs and services at Arizona Western College designed to assist you in preparing for the workforce and in supporting your educational and professional development pursuits.

Labor market data indicates that 65 percent of jobs in today's workforce are classified as "skilled and technical." Jobs in this classification require training beyond high school but do not necessarily require a four-year degree. Choosing a Career and Technical Education program at AWC means you can be on your way to a new career or better position in your current field in two years or less - or - beginning in an occupationally related Associate's Degree program for transfer towards your Bachelor's Degree.

Whether you are just leaving high school, beginning to explore your career goals, want to advance in your chosen occupation, or an adult looking to upgrade your skills to make a career change, you are invited you to explore the programs offered by the Career and Technical Education Division at AWC and discover the pathway to your future.
