  • Welcome to the Richland County School District One Career and Technical Education (CTE) Department!

    CTE allows students to engage through skill development and training in preparation for the workforce, collegiate studies, or military service beyond high school. The CTE courses and CTE Completer Programs (multiple courses in the same field of study) allow Richland One students to become career ready job candidates before high school graduation. Students enrolled in CTE programs may earn dual credit for college, receive state and nationally recognized industry certifications, and gain real-world work experience (apprenticeships, internships, job shadowing, school-based enterprise, etc...).

    Learn more about what CTE offers students, parents, and Business & Industry.
