As was explained in our recent Community Update, our continuity of education plan is changing in response to Gov. Wolf’s mandate that all schools in Pennsylvania remain closed for the rest of the 2019-2020 school year.
Continuity of Education is the overall goal for any educational practices that occur in the event of a prolonged school closure. This has been particularly challenging for our instructors because the key feature of our programs are the opportunities to engage in hands-on learning in our career fields. While a large part of our program instruction is hands-on, we have always stressed the importance of the classroom work and theory to support and give a basis to our technical tasks. Our instructors have been working diligently over the past weeks to continue to provide a Continuity of Education plan to continue to engage our students in this new way of learning.
All learning provided by our instructors will align with industry standards, and the program’s goals and objectives. We are committed to helping our students reach successful outcomes. We are fortunate that many of our industry certifications can be obtained online and offered during this time.
