In response to “Schools need to bring back trade education programs” (Letters, March 10) I would like the community to know about our Silicon Valley Career Technical Education programs located at the MetroED campus on Hillsdale Avenue.

SVCTE partners with six local districts to provide approximately 1,500 area students with free training in 28 fields including animation, auto body refinishing, culinary arts, construction, HVAC, cybersecurity, dental and medical assisting, sports medicine, pharmacy, veterinary science, electrical, engineering and manufacturing skills, truck mechanics, robotics, fire science and law enforcement, forensic science, fashion design and video production.

Students spend part of their day at SVCTE and the remainder at their local high school. This is a fantastic facility with state of the art training equipment that most high schools districts on their own would have difficulty housing and updating on a regular basis. Also, 21 of the 28 courses offered meet UC system entrance requirements. A campus tour may be scheduled at www.svcte.org.
