CareerTech Skills Centers


CTSC is securing Oklahoma's future by developing a world-class workforce.


CTSC prepares Oklahomans to succeed in the workplace, in education and in life.


The CareerTech Skills Center (CTSC) school system is a multi-campus entity that is operated by the Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education in Stillwater, Oklahoma. CTSC was originally established in 1971 at Jim E. Hamilton Correctional Center in Hodgen, Oklahoma, in LeFlore County that specializes in providing career and technology training to inmates currently under the supervision of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections (DOC). In 1996, CTSC entered into an agreement with the Oklahoma Office of Juvenile Affairs (OJA) to provide training to juvenile offenders.

CTSC campuses encompass the entire State of Oklahoma and serve an average of 1220 students annually by offering full-time programs and short-term training at 16 sites housed within DOC facilities. CTSC provides oversight for the state's secondary Dropout Recovery programs (DOR).

CTSC is a unique educational establishment known for delivering quality training that promotes and enhances Oklahoma’s workforce as well as consistently providing a provable Return on Investment (ROI) for Oklahoma taxpayers. During our 40+ years of serving incarcerated inmates in Oklahoma, CTSC has evolved from a division with a few occupational training programs to a large school system with a multitude of programs and services for both adult and juvenile offenders.
