We're dedicated to staying on the forefront of education.
We go beyond hands-on learning by leveraging online instruction, virtual reality training, and Colorado's brightest minds to provide the best possible education for our students.
One of the highest licensure, completion, and job placement rates in the state!
CSU ONLINE BADGING
We've partnered with Emily Griffith Technical College (EGTC) and CSU Online to fast-track veterans to employment by exempting them from coursework that mirrors their military work experience.
Veterans who gained auto service skills during their military service can translate that experience into course credit.
Upon program completion, these veterans earn the same EGTC Auto Service certificate as full-time, on-campus students.
Thanks to a generous grant from Xcel Energy Foundation, EGTC will complete a pilot of the Automotive Service Badging program this year!
EGTC is launching its first virtual reality (VR) program in 2018, which will focus on Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) training for skilled trades.
This pilot program will be the first step toward building a training applications library covering programs from health care to automotive repair.
VR technology has the capability of placing students in high-quality simulations in which live versions of the training are prohibitively expensive, dangerous or irreplicable —and has been shown to increase student learning through active participation.
Amidst a rapidly changing world economy, American business and education face the challenges of closing the skills gap for our growing industries.
More than 30 distinguished educators, business leaders, and students joined us for a leadership roundtable on the future of workforce education in November 2016 to identify priorities to help guide policymakers as well as the business and education sectors.
