Career and Technical School offers opportunities for students

Student working in the electrical trades as the Career and Technical School in AlbanyALBANY — Matt Articolo, a sophomore at Scotia-Glenville High School, gets a feel for the electrical trades program at Capital Region BOCES Career and Technical School on Friday as current CTE student Demetrius Todman and other prospective students look on.

The Capital Region BOCES is hosting numerous tours for prospective students this month and in March as sophomores and juniors determine how they want to prepare for their future.

“I want to get into the electrical industry when I am older. I like the idea of getting into the union program, it’s a good career,” said Articolo, as he explained his interest in the BOCES program.

With double-digit projected job growth during the next decade and a media U.S. salary of $52,720 per year in 2016, it shouldn’t be a shock to anyone that students are electrified by the BOCES electrical trades program.
