Although there are many different schools all across the state, they are all intertwined within the Kentucky Community and Technical College System which acts as a connection between all the schools. This helps students if they need to move midway through their schooling, they will be able to transfer much easier than if they had to go to a whole new college system. Along with that, it is a good way to get training in multiple different areas as if you finish a degree you can transfer to another school and get another degree that you desire.
