Are you technically competent?
Do you have significant work experience?
Are you lacking a college degree to advance in your career field?
Let Thomas Nelson Community College’s Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Technical Studies with a Specialization in Technical Supervision help you grow and develop.
The Specialization in Technical Supervision is designed to provide college credit to skilled workers who have significant and documented occupational experience and technical training into formal education to advance their careers.
Students can earn college credit for knowledge, training and skills obtained from work experience. Applicants who have completed certifications, registered apprenticeships, former or current service members, and employees of companies with highly structured training programs can transition into the AAS degree and receive credits for their professional experience.
This new program credits you for technical skills and professional experience, up to 23 credits. Upon acceptance into the program, your participation in a course, co-taught by Thomas Nelson Community College and Old Dominion faculty, will determine how much academic credit you will be awarded for those technical skills and professional experiences.
If additional course work is required to reach the 23 credits, an academic advisor will help you determine which elective classes align with your professional goals.
Learn more about a career in this field, how much it typically pays, what the demand is, and how your education can help you become qualified.
