Transfer Credits

Should you choose to continue your education after you leave CVTC, we have agreements in place with several institutions to ensure an easy transfer. Just because we don't have a partnership agreement with a college or university, doesn't mean your credits won't transfer. Contact the transfer coordinator at the college or university to which you plan to transfer to help make a smooth transition from CVTC.

Focus On Student Success

I want a job where I can use my skills at troubleshooting, and I like the variety of things we learn here, like pneumatics, hydraulics, and PLCs. We learn how all these things relate to one another. Most systems are designed to fit different technologies together, and we learn how to work with them all.
