The Technical Studies Program provides an opportunity to earn credits for apprenticeship training programs in the building and construction trades, based upon the American Council on Education (ACE) review and evaluation of the program.
Under New Jersey Pathways Leading Apprentices to a College Education (NJ Place), community colleges, organized labor and several state agencies have developed a program to award college credit for registered apprenticeships in the construction trades.
Graduates of the program will be able to:
- Submit satisfactory completion of the apprenticeship program to be eligible for credits. A maximum of 25 credits will be awarded.
- Acquire the knowledge and skills to succeed in their chosen profession and earn an associate degree.
Students must demonstrate Algebra I competency before taking courses in the major. Algebra I competency may be verified with a passing score on the College’s placement test or by completing the appropriate class.
