Here at Emmett O’Brien Tech, we offer a wide range of services to the public at a fraction of the market price. Providing students with real projects for real customers here in Connecticut, and delivering high-quality products to them.

Work-Based Learning (WBL) allows a student to work for an employer during their trade instructional time. Students not only receive credit toward their career technology, but also get paid. WBL is offered at all CTECS schools as a way for students to gain real-world experience, work in teams, solve problems and meet employer expectations. Through partnerships with local companies, students gain hands-on career development experiences that will help them through the transition from school to work and give them an advantage in the competitive workforce.
