Chris Harris
Work Based Learning Coordinator

The Work-Based Learning "service" exists to meet the needs of vocational-technical students, district employers, and college instructors by:

  • Enabling students to simultaneously pursue an Associate of Applied Science degree in a vocational-technical education program and receive 3 semester credit hours for parallel work site experience.
  • Providing employers a referral system for hiring student-workers as new employees with specific preparation and an opportunity for upgrading current employees to a more productive educational level.
  • Allowing instructors a process for building relationships with employers to enable the continuous, "quality management" of instructional objectives, technologies and standards.
