Maine has 27 career and technical centers (CTEs), training students in everything from auto mechanics to agriculture, public safety to computer-assisted design, yet many manufacturers, hospitals and other employer say they can't find enough well-trained employees for the jobs of today and for the future.  We'll look at how Maine's CTEs are working to address that shortage, how to attract more young people to the trades and what opportunities exist.
