It is a public vocational school that offers hands-on, project-based learning in various vocations and technical trades designed to prepare students for entry into the job market upon graduation.

The technical programs at AVTEC teach real-world skills that are directly applicable and immediately relevant in the career field.

For veterans and a few minority groups, there are special financial assistance plans and tuition waiver.
