Pellissippi State hosts session on earning college credit through apprenticeship

Pellissippi State Community College is hosting an information session for prospective students who want to learn how they can earn college credit through U.S. Department of Labor–approved apprenticeships.

Training directors, apprentices and practicing trades workers are invited to attend. The information session is scheduled for Monday, Nov. 19, at 6 p.m. in the Goins Building Auditorium on Pellissippi State’s Hardin Valley Campus.

The college has a new technology program that makes it possible to receive up to 30 college credit hours through a DOL-approved apprenticeship. The credits count toward an Associate of Applied Science degree in General Technology, with an Industrial Technology concentration. The program includes preparation and tutoring to help students get started.
