If you have strong organization and customer service skills, CVTC’s new Library & Information Services program is the right choice for you.

Upon completion of the program, you may gain employment as a Circulation Supervisor, Education Paraprofessional, Library Assistant, Library Technician, Media Specialist, or Register of Deeds.
The Library & Information Services program is 100% online – which means you can study at a time that works best for you.
