Students enrolling in long term programs begin with a mandatory, general orientation session followed by more specific orientation sessions throughout the first few days. During this time, students receive information on campus procedures and services, copies of the student handbook (also found online), get pictures taken for their student I.D., meet with Financial Aid if necessary, complete any necessary paperwork, and have staff introductions. Students also receive information regarding support services available on campus and in the community that may be pertinent to the student’s success while at AVTEC.
Each training program provides a program-specific orientation in the training area, and those living in campus housing have an orientation session specific to housing rules and regulations. Follow-ups to orientation include discussions on safety, Title IX, and Drug-Free Workplace practices. The follow-up sessions are held within two weeks from the beginning of training.
