Wild­ing also pro­vided in­for­ma­tion about ca­reer and tech­nol­ogy ed­u­ca­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties through­out the Calvert County pub­lic school sys­tem. Class mem­bers were able to tour the CTA fa­cil­ity and watch stu­dents in ac­tion in a va­ri­ety of cour­ses in­clud­ing graphic arts, weld­ing, HVAC, cy­ber se­cu­rity and cos­me­tol­ogy, as well as the re­sults of the CTA culi­nary stu­dents’ ef­forts, en­joy­ing from-scratch pas­tries for break­fast and a lunch, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease.

They toured the state-of-the-art build­ing de­voted to trades ed­u­ca­tion and learned about the col­lege’s course of­fer­ings aimed at serv­ing stu­dents at a va­ri­ety of steps along their ca­reer paths.
