Sunday, September 24, 2017

The instructors of the Early Childhood Development program have included training collaborations within the programs course offerings designed to benefit students in their future employment. Many statewide training initiatives have been developed through the Department of Human Services, Early Care, and Education division. UA-PTC has incorporated these certificates into appropriate courses so that a student who earns a “C” or better and completes all projects successfully in a course also receives the state certificate. The department has been able to incorporate seven certificates into existing courses.

Students who complete any of the above courses with a “C” or better and successful completion of all projections will be awarded the certificate listed at the end of the semester.
