Whitmer Career and Technology Center

CTC Director's Message

Deb Heban
Every year the students at Whitmer High School have a head start on their future by enrolling in a Career & Technology program.  Career Tech Education is no longer considered a "less than" college prep route, but an ideal way to develop a well-rounded, career and college ready student who will be advanced in the career path they choose when they graduate from high school.


DID YOU REALIZE THAT...

  • If you are enrolled in a career tech program you can begin earning college credit before you ever walk onto a college campus;
  • The CTC programs give you the opportunity to obtain industry-recognized certifications before you graduate;
  • Students can be released from school to work with business and industries in the trained field;
  • Students have the opportunity for membership in the National Technical Honor Society;
  • There are scholarship opportunities for career tech students;
  • There are leadership opportunities by being involved in a co-curricular Career-Tech Student Organization; and
  • We offer customer service to the community; stop by and take advantage of reasonable prices for these services.

All services are performed by high school students under the supervision of certified instructors.

  • Services are offered for your car through the Automotive Technology program which includes oil changes, wheel alignment, and brakes;
  • Our Campus Cafe is the perfect place to stop in for a fantastic lunch.  Lunch is served Thursday and Friday from 11:00 to 12:30.  We also offer catering services; and
  • The Cosmetology program offers hair styling, coloring, chemical relaxing, permanent waves, manicures and pedicures.

As a career tech student you will receive training in today's technologies using the necessary equipment which will provide you with real-world experience.  Success in college is enhanced by providing strong, relevant academics as well as job shadowing, mentoring, and internships.

Career Tech Month Celebration

Anatomage Table

Anatomage Table

Students in Whitmer High School’s Career & Technology Center Medical Academy, which includes a Medical Technology program and a Medical Assisting program, have a high-tech new way to learn about human anatomy with this state-of-the-art Anatomage table. We also plan to use the table in conjunction with our Science Department and the Anatomy and Physiology for Career Tech courses.  The Anatomage table, used by the world’s top medical schools and hospitals, and featured by TEDTalks and PBS, are described as the most technologically advanced 3D visualization system for anatomy and physiology education.


“I am so excited for our students to learn on interactive equipment and this will be such an impressive and powerful teaching and learning experience. This new equipment will give our students the unlimited benefit for understanding anatomy and the body systems and applying that understanding and knowledge once they are in the real-world of work,” Deb Heban, Career-Technical Education Director at Washington Local Schools. “This new equipment will give our students the experience of virtual learning today in our CTC Medical labs.  This is going to be very exciting for our students”.


As a market leader in medical virtualization technology, described as the “world's first virtual dissection table” by the Anatomage company, this highly interactive equipment features a life-sized display, touch screen technology and  enables an ecosystem of 3D anatomy hardware and software, allowing users to visualize anatomy at the highest level of accuracy.  It allows the users to view photorealistic anatomical structures layer by layer and from every angle. These structures are based on thousands of real human cases that have been digitized in the highest possible resolution. According to Anatomage, research has shown that working with the table improves student retention and test scores. To learn more about the Anatomage system or to watch a video on how the table works, visit https://www.anatomage.com/table/.  If you have any questions feel free to contact Deb Heban at [email protected].
