Previous Training and Work Experience
Previous training and work experience will be evaluated through student performance on course objectives. Students who demonstrate proficiency in a particular skill will be advanced to successive skill levels. Persons such as veterans with significant previous training or experience may be able to complete all objectives in less than the prescribed time. Students may challenge course competencies by making arrangements with the program instructor or department head.
All students who successfully complete their program requirements will receive a Program Certificate of Completion, and will be issued an industry-recognized occupational level based on the competencies completed by the student. In addition to meeting program minimum competencies, some programs require the student to obtain industry certifications to be eligible for a program certification.
In most AVTEC programs, a student may train for one of several occupational levels with each progressive level representing greater achievement. The student’s motivation, abilities, and performance determine the final certificate level.
