CTI was born out of Mayor Daniel J. Reiman’s vision for a better Carteret. Through CTI we will crate many paths to a successful future.  This investment in our community will undoubtedly help increase quality of life in the Borough. Carteret is one of the only towns in NJ to provide such an amazing opportunity to its residents at no cost. Our programs aim to offer career paths that will serve our students for the rest of their lives. The skill-sets learned in our classrooms reflect real-world scenarios and fulfill real-world business needs. The approach of training based on business needs will ensure that our graduates are most marketable and have the highest chance of being successful.
