NOTE: Credit earned through certificate and diploma program completion will be applicable toward the Associate of Applied Science in General Occupational/Technical Studies degree when consistent with the objectives of the student’s individual plan of study.

A student must receive a grade of “C” or better to receive credit for successful completion of courses in the diesel technology curriculum.

If students are taking the CET Track, it is recommended that the students take the MHTT track the first three semesters. This will
allow them to add DIT 152/DIT 153 and DIT 123 in their final semester. Doing this along with General Education courses along
the way and WLD 120/WLD 121 in the summer semester will qualify them for both CET and MHTT in the same amount of time
(two years).

Curriculum within KCTCS is reviewed and updated to ensure quality and relevance. This curriculum plan should be used only as a guide for meeting the course requirements for each credential. See the KCTCS catalog for specifics and consult your advisor
