Technical and vocational educators offer specific skill-based classes, including plumbing, electrical, and auto repair. Vocational programs may also include computer-aided drawing (CAD), commercial art, computer repair or cosmetology. Vocational teachers work to prepare students for a specific career path that generally ends with successful completion of a certificate or trade endorsement. Vocational-technical schools, high schools and community colleges are the primary institutions offering vocational programs.
