CTE

Career & Technical Education

Career and Technical Education Classification of Instructional Programs Codes (CIP)

CIP codes are used to characterize CTE program types. SED has selected a subset of CIP codes to be used when reporting CTE data. Since programs at the BOCES or technical/CTE high schools are more occupationally focused, the selection of a specific CIP code is usually clear. The choice of CIP codes for CTE programs in high schools might require the use of a more general CIP code since programs at local high schools often cross content areas and may not be predefined or linear in nature. CTE students at local high schools build their programs based on individual interests to form cohesive concentrations; the selection of the code is linked to this building process. The following general CIP codes reflect the six major CTE content areas. If a student is in programs from two of these content areas, the code to be reported should be the one in which the majority of the student’s time is spent. The six content areas and their related CIP codes are:

Agriculture: use CIP code 010599
Business and Marketing: use CIP code 529999    
Family and Consumer Sciences: use CIP code 199999
Health Occupations: use CIP code 519999     
Technology Education: use CIP code 151599
Trade and Technical: use CIP code 489999   

When a local agency is unable to determine the appropriate code they should contact their RIC. If need be, the RIC can contact the NYSED CTE Team at 518-486-1547 or emsccte@mail.nysed.gov for assistance.

The following specific CIP codes, the same subset found in the SIRS Manual, should be used when they accurately characterize the CTE programs reported.
