Two new courses are being offered for the 2018-19 school year at Capital Region BOCES
Career and Technical School (CTE).

The new programs — Engineering Technician and Pet Tech — will be offered starting in September and prepare students for jobs that are all projected to increase in demand by at least 12 percent; students should contact their respective high school counselors now to express interest and enroll.

The new programs reflect BOCES on-going efforts to work with business partners to ensure students are being offered educational opportunities that prepare them for in-demand jobs in the region, state and across the United States.

The first of the new offerings, Engineering Technician, is a direct result of those efforts, as the course is being designed with experts from GlobalFoundries. Students who complete the course will automatically be interviewed for jobs.

Students in the Engineering Technician program will learn about the semi-conductor industry, as well as clean room protocol, safety, electronics, hand tool usage, automation, tool extraction and repair, valve operation and repair and much more. For more information, check out the program page here or call BOCES at (518) 862-4801.Pet Tech

The new Pet Tech program is designed for students who are interested in working with small domestic animals to learn basic care in preparation for a career in the burgeoning pet care industry.

Students completing the program will learn basic care skills for animals, including pet grooming and washing and best practices for boarding animals, as well as customer service, written and spoken communications, office and computer skills and more. For more information, check out the program page here or call BOCES at (518) 862-4801.
