CTE Dual Credit

Career and Technical Education Dual Credit

CTE Dual Credit allows high school students to earn college credit in their high school career and technical education (CTE) classes without leaving their high school campus. CTE Dual Credit used to be called Tech Prep.

Renton Technical College has articulation agreements with high schools in the Puget Sound Dual Credit Career Consortium (PSDC3). These agreements allow students to get direct RTC credit for specific skills they have learned while in high school.
