PROFESSIONAL AFFILIATIONS

(Don't just take our word for it)

 Maryland State Board of Nursing  allows our students to become certified based on clinical hours and a written exam.  Certification by state agencies assures parents and students that the skills we teach are relevant and important in today's job market.  A program's certifications must be renewed usually every three years through an onsite evaluation of the program.

Colleges An agreement based on the college's requirements for curriculum, faculties, and instructor is prepared and renewed periodically to guarantee that students are getting the equivalent instruction at CCCTC that would be expected in class at that institution.  Credits are awarded based on that agreement. (See college advantage)

PROFESSIONAL ADVISORY COUNSEL  By Federal and state regulations each program has a group of local business and educational institutions that periodically meets to discuss  the programs curriculum and resources to make sure current trends in technology and skills are being taught so that students are prepared for the ever changing career requirements for that industry.  (more)
