ACTC to host info session for three programs

June 17, 2019

 

     Ashland Community and Technical College will host an information session for prospective students for the Computers and Information Technology, Business Administration and Medical Information Technology programs, at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 20 at the Technology Drive Campus.
     The hour-long session will include information on the structure of the program, credential options, online learning, internship opportunities and more. Admissions and financial aid staff will also be available to help people register for classes and answer questions on how to pay for college.
     CIT program coordinator Randolph Cullum will discuss one of ACTC’s newest courses of study — Cloud Computing Technologies – that will help students learn cloud skills and help lead to a potentially high-paying career in cloud-computing right after graduation.
Beginning in the fall, the new track will offer two courses through Amazon Web Services Academy, including the AWS Academy Cloud Foundations course and the AWS Academy Cloud Architecting course.
     ACTC will offer two credentials that include AWS Academy courses. The first credential is the Associate of Applied Science degree with a Cloud Computing Technologies Track. This track requires 61 credit hours and can be completed in five semesters, which includes one summer term. The second credential will focus on AWS Academy Cloud Architecting. It will require 19 hours of course work and can be completed in three semesters as a part-time student.
     Both programs will prepare students to take the AWS Cloud Practitioner Certification Exam and the AWS Cloud Solutions Architect Associate Exam.
     The last day to submit an application for the fall 2019 semester is Aug. 5. The first day of classes is Aug. 19.
