February is CTE Month!

February is Career and Technical Education (CTE) month! ICC has many CTE Programs that prepare students to jump directly into a career including Graphic Communications, Cisco Networking, and Library Technical Assistant to name a few.

To celebrate February as CTE Month, we will be sharing the stories of ICC students from a variety of CTE Programs. Learn more about why students chose their CTE Program and if a similar education path might by the right one for you.
