  Did you know that certified automotive technicians can make $100,000 per year, executive chefs can earn $84,000 annually, and that it's not uncommon for some Web site designers to earn $78,000 per year? Where do students learn the skills and gain the valuable hands-on experience required for these and many other high-paying professions? The answer is simply, "in any of Palau's career/technical education programs."

These valuable links will assist educators in helping their students. Educators can help students pick careers that fit their interests and guide them on their educational path.
