Career and Technical Education (CTE) Pathway

Durham Tech offers both certificate and diploma Pathways of Study within the CTE pathway. Students must meet program qualifications in order to enroll in CTE pathways. Students can use one or a combination of any of the approved standardized assessments to verify that they meet this requirement. Students who wish to qualify through a waiver recommendation must provide test scores that confirm course prerequisites are met. View more information on the CCP Eligibility web page.

The following CTE pathways do not have developmental course prerequisites and do not require placement testing. Some CTE Pathways may require a course taken before the next course is taken in the sequence. These links will take you to the program page that is the equivalent of the CCP pathway. Once you navigate to the program page, the plan of study link is at the bottom.

Note: Students are responsible for reading notes about specific pathway deviations for CCP students which are listed under the pathway link.
