Career Fields

Students at Destinations Career Academy of Oregon gain exposure to relevant technical and specialty trade skills from career technical education (CTE) courses built around three career fields. Successful completion of these courses may help students prepare for industry-recognized certification exams after graduation.*

CTE courses are based on the knowledge and skills required for each career pathway in the following career fields:

  • Health Science: Careers in planning, managing, and providing therapeutic services, diagnostic services, health informatics, support services, and biotechnology research and development. Learn more about Health Science.

  • Information Technology (IT): Building linkages in IT occupations for entry level, technical, and professional careers related to the design, development, support, and management of hardware, software, multimedia, and systems integration services. Learn more about Information Technology.

  • Marketing: Careers in planning, directing, and providing marketing communications, strategy, advertising, promotion, and public relations activities. Learn more about Marketing.

*In some programs it may be necessary for students to attend Destinations for at least two years to have enough exposure to CTE courses to be best prepared for certification exams. Microsoft Office certifications may be earned as early as after one semester.
