CTE Bill Reported by Committee

Del. Greason’s CTE bill (HB 1493), which would require that every automotive career and technical education program maintain industry certification and that the instructor of such program be certified, was considered by the Senate Education and Health Committee yesterday. Representatives of the Virginia Auto Dealers Association represented again that the association would work with school divisions to enable them to obtain and maintain certification for their programs and personnel. The bill was reported by the Committee on a vote of 11 to 4.
