Fox Valley Tech offers dual credit program for high school students

May 1, 2013

From “Fox Valley Tech introduces dual credit program for high school students” — Fox Valley Technical College begins a new initiative to connect students to available jobs in less time.

Calling it a “Do the Dual” event, officials highlighted an effort to connect high school classes to technical college credits.

Fox Valley Tech says the emphasis is to fill open machinist positions in the area.

“That’ll give you about a semester-and-a-half, two semester head start, which is very helpful because the faster you get in here, the faster you can leave, and the faster you can get back into the workforce, and showing the skills you just learned is very beneficial to your employer and yourself,” Brillion High School graduate Ryan Gieger said.

High school officials we talked with say programs like this help get students to viable careers in less time and in sectors where jobs are available.
