The Associate in Applied Science in Building Trade Technology is designed to meet workforce training needs of business and industry by recognizing college-level, on-the-job learning. This program supports the registered Apprenticeship program (Journey papers) as outlined by the Department of Labor, Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training.

The Building Trade Technology program consists of an industry-based technical core (approved apprenticeship program) and a general education component to complement the technical core. The Coordinating Board of Higher Education states “this degree preparation offers more flexibility than a traditional college-based AAS degree program, in that the candidate can easily earn college credit for his/her apprenticeship training, hone proficiencies through supervised practice, as well as develop additional skills for living and work”.

The program is restricted to those that are accepted into or have completed an approved apprenticeship program. To earn the degree the student must complete both the building trade apprenticeship and the designated general education courses. CCBC will transfer a block of forty-five (45) credits for completion of the apprenticeship training program once the student has also completed 15/16 credits at CCBC.

The Department of Labor has identified apprenticeship program completion for college credit as an important opportunity to enhance the competitiveness of the industry by enlarging the pool of highly trained workers. Graduates of this program may be employed in the various trade areas - such as plumber, electrician, HVAC, welder, maintenance technician, mechanical technician, bricklayer, carpenter, cement mason, elevator constructor, insulator, ironworker, laborer, operating engineer, painter, drywall finisher, glazer, plaster, roofer, steel metal worker, sprinkler fitter, and steamfitter.

Radiology Technician

Radiologic Technology

See Details

According to the US Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook, employment of radiologic technologists is expected to grow faster than the average for all occupations through 2030, as the population grows and ages, increasing the demand for diagnostic imaging.

Radiography programs require, at a minimum, a high school diploma or the equivalent. High school courses in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology are helpful. The programs provide both classroom and clinical instruction in anatomy and physiology, patient care procedures, radiation physics, radiation protection, principles of imaging, medical terminology, positioning of patients, medical ethics, radiobiology, pathology, and digital imaging.

Federal legislation protects the public from the hazards of unnecessary exposure to medical and dental radiation by ensuring that operators of radiologic equipment are adequately trained. Under this legislation, the Federal Government sets voluntary standards that the States may use for accrediting training programs and certifying individuals who engage in medical or dental radiography. Upon successful completion of the program, the student is eligible to sit for the Registry exam from the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists for certification.

Various career opportunities are available after graduation. Radiographers are currently employed in hospitals, private physicians’ offices, clinics, sales, industry, and military service. Ample opportunity for professional growth and advancement exists in specialty areas such as Ultrasound, Nuclear Medicine, Radiation Therapy, Computerized Automated Tomography (CT), Special Procedures, and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), as well as management and education.
