The Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs at Hawai‘i CC are an integral part of the local community and reflect its day-to-day life. Close cooperation among the faculty, employers, and employees in the community is maintained. One of the most effective formal means of providing for this type of cooperation is the Program Advisory Council. These groups advise their respective programs of training needs and new developments in the field. Councils include employers, alumni, and others knowledgeable about the field.
Information Technology Program Advisory Council:
- Jeremy Chong, IT Manager, KTA
- Tim Minick, Director of IT, Pacific Guardian Life
- Scott Uehara , Director of InformationTechnology, County of Hawai‘i

There’s not enough people going into IT and cybersecurity.” Read more about the IT and cybersecurity degrees and certificates in this Hawaii Tribune-Herald article.
