CAREER AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION
The Career and Technical Education Centers provide workforce preparation training in career specific areas for high school students and adults. This training is offered at the Northern Catskills Occupational Center in Grand Gorge, NY and the Otsego Area Occupational Center in Milford, NY. Our Career and Technical Education programs focus on integrating academics with instruction in specific trade-related skills. Students are supported in their transition to the world of work through hands-on instruction and through work experience under the supervision of certified instructors. Advanced standing in many colleges, technical schools, military and businesses are offered through the ongoing development of articulation agreements. The New Visions Health Care Professions Program is offered at A.O. Fox Hospital in Oneonta, NY and Bassett Hospital in Cooperstown, NY. Additionally, the central administrative offices for ONC BOCES are located at the Northern Catskills Occupational Center, in Grand Gorge, NY. Enrollment in any ONC BOCES Career and Technical Education program, with the exception of Adult Education, must be made at the request of the component school district to the Career and Technical Education Centers’ administration.
