Practical Experience and Technical Skills

We attract students who desire real-world opportunities. If you thrive on hands-on learning and relevant curriculum you can use immediately, Central Tech is the school for you. Upon entering a classroom, you will feel the school pride as you visit with students and instructors. Healthy competition keeps students at the top of their game in class and in the application process. We have a student waiting list each year. With limited classroom size, it is best to enroll early.

"My time at Central Tech was essential to my career path.

I graduated from the Surgical Technology class in June of 2018 and further realized that medicine was the career for me. After gaining experience as a surgical technologist at Stillwater Medical Center, I decided to pursue medical school. I then began to pursue a bachelor's degree in biomedical sciences at the University of Central Oklahoma while continuing to put my surgical technologist skills to work.

The program at Central Tech gave me the skills I needed to continue to provide for myself and my family while I pursue my dream of becoming a doctor."
Cory Sadler, Alumni

Why Central Tech

Central Tech Staff

Nothing Teaches Like Experience

Quality leaders emphasize goals, direction, results, and ongoing evaluation. This encourages instructors to lead by example as they begin each day with high expectations and push students to do their best.

Respect is the alliance that bonds students and faculty. Our instructors, having worked in their industry, demonstrate a passion for their trade. It’s reflected in the students as they take pride in their work and become a part of something greater than themselves. This culture doesn’t happen by accident.

We pride ourselves on a student-to-faculty ratio of 18:1.

As part of the Oklahoma CareerTech system, our 25 communities, including 18 high schools, gain strength as we prepare secondary and post-secondary students for the workforce, armed with industry-recognized credentials.

With a focus on quality instruction, enrollment, and placement, we incorporate collaboration, problem-solving, and critical thinking into the curriculum.

Lifelong learning is no longer an option in this technological world. As technology advances and occupations evolve, people must adhere to the demands of stronger and more continuous learning to stay marketable.
