A Career Cluster is a grouping of occupations and broad industries based on commonalities. Within each career cluster, there are multiple career pathways that represent a common set of skills and knowledge, both academic and technical, necessary to pursue a full range of career opportunities within that pathway – ranging from entry-level to management, including technical and professional career specialties. Based on the skills sets taught, all CTE courses are aligned with one or more career clusters and career pathways.  Career Clusters help students investigate careers and design their courses of study to advance their career goals.  Being familiar with career clusters may help a student begin to narrow down their career path as well as to think about which programs at Triplett may help them reach their ultimate goals.  


At Triplett Tech, we offer programs in the following Career Clusters:

  • Architecture and Construction

  • Health Science

  • Hospitality and Tourism

  • Human Services

  • Information Technology

  • Law, Public Safety, Corrections and Security

  • Transportation, Distribution and Logistics

 The remainder of the Reference Guide is organized according to career cluster providing an overview of the career cluster as well as specific details about each program within the cluster.


Students in the Commonwealth of Virginia earning a standard diploma are required to earn a credential.  An education and work-related credential can be defined as a verification of an individual’s qualification or competence issued by a third party with the relevant authority to issue such credential determined by approval from the Virginia Department of Education (U.S. Department of Labor, 2010).  The term credential encompasses educational certificates, degrees, certifications, and government-issued licenses.   At Triplett Tech, all students completing a program will have an opportunity to earn an industry credential. Students may earn additional credentials that are not recognized by the Virginia Department of Education, but the credential is a value add in the workforce

Several programs offered at Triplett Tech award college credit for a corresponding course at Laurel Ridge Community College.  This dual enrollment opportunity was arranged to promote effective and efficient use of educational resources of the Commonwealth and encourage qualified Triplett Tech students to pursue post-secondary educational opportunities that directly build on their learning at Triplett.  This opportunity is designed for high school juniors and seniors who meet minimum admissions standards through Laurel Ridge Community College.

Students enrolling in dual enrollment courses will be required to complete the Laurel Ridge Community College Admissions Application as well as satisfactorily meet prerequisite scores on both a math and English placement test.  There is no charge to the student to either complete the application or complete the placement tests.

Currently the following programs offer dual enrollment opportunities:

  • Electricity II
  • Health Care Science
  • Medical Systems Administration
