Be Bold, Break the Mold! Nontraditional Careers and You.

You’ve made a smart choice in choosing Chattahoochee Technical College, now make a bold choice and consider a nontraditional program of study. Nontraditional programs of study lead to nontraditional careers. Nontraditional careers are occupations in which women or men comprise 25% or less of its total employment, such as females in law enforcement or males in nursing.
