    The real benefit of CTE programs is that most of your classes are comprised of labs where you are in front of the actual technology and tools that you would use on the job. Yes, you still may have to read books and listen to lectures, but you’ll be able to incorporate all that knowledge in the labs and later when you’re out on the job.
