PLATTSBURGH - Clinton Community College has signed a new articulation agreement with Champlain Valley-Technical Education Center.
The agreement, signed June 25, encourages academic cooperation between the two institutions and establishes guidelines for granting college credit for coursework performed by Technician Candidates in the CV-TEC Plattsburgh Aeronautical Institute.
The objectives of the agreement would attract qualified students to both Clinton Community College's Individual Studies Program and to CV-TEC's Plattsburgh Aeronautical Institute. Students wishing to pursue a career in the aviation technology would be provided the specific information they need. The agreement helps to assure the academic coordination between faculty, students, and administrator's at each institution and to promote efficient transfer of qualified graduates from CV-TEC to CCC. Qualified students graduating from the PAI program who hold Federal Aviation Administration certification as an Airframe & Powerplant Technician will be provided articulated credit.
"One of the important aspects of this agreement is that CCC will award 36 free elective credits to Technician Candidates who have successfully completed PAI and have obtained Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification as an Airframe & Powerplant Technician," explained Dr. Cheryl Reagan, CCC vice president for academic affairs. "Students will only have to complete 24 more credits for their Associates in Applied Science (A.A.S) degree in Individual Studies. This is a great opportunity to combine technical aspects for a career and the general education for the degree and possible further study."
"This articulation agreement is a great example of the kinds of things that we can accomplish by working together," said CCC president John E. Jablonski. "The [Plattsburgh-North Country Chamber of Commerce] has a bold and progressive vision for workforce development in our region. CV-TEC is ready to begin training high-tech employees according to international standards. And now Clinton Community College can help those students to use their industry credentials to satisfy more than half the requirements for an associate's degree."
