Enrollment and Orientation
Each training program at AVTEC has a separate enrollment date, and the lengths of the programs vary from a few days to 42 weeks. Students enrolling in classes six weeks or longer begin their training by attending orientation sessions. During this time students receive information on school procedures and services, obtain their program schedule, and meet with a school counselor. Counseling meetings include course selection, career goals, personal challenges, and other issues pertinent to the student’s success at AVTEC. Staff will review entry test results with the student and make recommendations for study. An evening tutor program is available for students who need instruction in reading and English. Math classes required for graduation are scheduled during the training day.
All training programs at AVTEC have established recommended basic skill levels listed under prerequisites for each individual training program. Students will be tested upon their arrival. If they fail to meet the required skill level for the program, they will either be placed in a Foundation Skills course or terminated from the program.
