CVTC receives federal grant support for Non-traditional Occupation (NTO) students through the federal Carl D. Perkins Career & Education Act. Non-traditional occupations (NTO) designated programs represent careers in which less than 25% of the workforce is made up of one gender. Today, many women and men are breaking down barriers to pursue successful careers in NTO fields.
