Career Technical Centre Programs
The Career Technical Centre programs are a joint project of School District #34 (Abbotsford) and the University of the Fraser Valley. Students enter the CTC at the Grade 11 level, spend two years enrolled in a specialized career or technical program, and graduate having fulfilled the requirements for both high school graduation and a
university-level one-year certificate.
The purpose of the centre is to prepare students directly for employment in their chosen field upon graduation. Or, in some programs they may choose to “ladder” their UFV credits into the second year of a two-year diploma or four-year degree program at UFV or another post-secondary institution. There are no tuition fees for CTC programs, so students get a year of
university credit at no cost!
Programs currently offered through the Career Technical Centre include:
• Applied Business Technology certificate
• Architectural Drafting Technician certificate
• Automotive Service Technician certificate
• Carpentry certificate
• Construction Electrician certificate
• Health and Human Services certificate
• Welding certificates

Applications for September are accepted beginning in February. Spaces are limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
