CTSOs benefit educators as much as they benefit students. CTSOs provide instructional strategies used to develop, and expand occupational competencies. They offer organized activities for students to gain personal and leadership skills making them more employable and productive.

CTSOs also offer skill assessments which measure the students skill competencies against current industry standards. This can act as valuable instructional tool to the educator.
