New ACTC Collins Career Center Agreements

Area students have new career path options through agreements signed by Ashland Community and Technical College and Collins Career Center in Chesapeake OH.

The two institutions have signed articulation agreements that provide a smooth transfer path for graduates of the Collins Radiologic Technology and Cardiac Sonography Programs.

The agreements outline the credits that can articulate to ACTC as part of an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) Degree. Credits from the Radiologic Technology Program are applied toward an AAS in Diagnostic Radiologic Technology. Credits from the Cardiac Sonography Program are applied toward an AAS in Diagnostic Medical Sonography: Cardiac Option.

"Cooperative articulation agreements such as these give students clearly defined opportunities to continue their education," said Dr. Janie Kitchen, ACTC Dean of Academic Affairs. "By partnering with other educational institutions, we are able to increase the educational and career options available to area residents."

"Collins Career Center feels very fortunate to have formal articulation agreements with such a fine institution like ACTC. I have worked with both President Greg Adkins and Dr. Janie Kitchen, and have found them to be student motivated and always interested in opportunities to help students, said Stephen K. Dodgion, Collins Career Center Superintendent.

"The articulation agreement between Collins Career Center and ACTC is an excellent path for students to receive an Associate Degree in addition to a certificate of completion, said Terri Williamson, Medical Imaging Director at Collins Career Center. This allows students the opportunity to continue their education beyond the primary paths of Radiography and Cardiac Sonography."
