The number of students continuing their education is expected to continue to rise as more students recognize the value of advanced technical skills to career growth. With 80% of today’s jobs requiring continued post-secondary technical training and education, increasingly greater numbers of students completing their career development experience at Western Area CTC are continuing their studies at the college level. College placement services are provided to students through sending schools and Western Area CTC’s guidance and career counseling departments. Our recent graduates have chosen these and other post-secondary training and education options: Bethany College | Bradford School | California University of Pennsylvania | Clarion University | Community College of Allegheny County | Douglas Education Center | Duquesne University | ITT Technical Institute | Indiana University of Pennsylvania | Johnson & Wales University | Kent State | Ohio Technical College | Penn Commercial, Inc. | Pennsylvania College of Technology | Pittsburgh Technical College | Robert Morris University | Rosedale Technical School | Sullivan University | St. Vincent College | Thiel College | U.S. Army | U.S. Marine Corps | University of Memphis | Washington  Hospital School of Nursing | Westmoreland Community College | West Virginia University | Western Area CTC: Practical Nursing Program | WyoTech.
