RETURN TO IN-PERSON LEARNING

INFORMATION FROM THE DIRECTOR

CATEC faculty and staff are eager to have students back in our building for in-person learning. We know it is important for students to have face-to-face time with their instructors and classmates and need hands-on time to practice their technical skills. While re-entry into our building will be different from previous years, we know it will greatly benefit students' abilities to accomplish their goals of becoming skilled in their industry of choice.
