Placement Tests and Transfer Credits
The Technology Foundations (TF) program is a support program for all the classes offered at the Tennessee College of Applied Technology except Truck Driving. Students are tested during the first few weeks after enrollment in math and reading. If found deficient in reading, they are directed to an online remediation program. Remedial math concepts, if needed, are incorporated into the program, as are related math concepts specific to each program area. Students attend TF classes during regular school hours.
Credit for Previous Training/Work Experience
Training completed in high school or at technical institutes, colleges and other training situations, such as business, industry, and the military, will be evaluated toward completion requirements where applicable. In order to request credit for previous training, students may be asked to provide one or more of the following:
- Testing: The program instructor may request that the student demonstrate proficiency through oral or written exams, and/or skill performance.
- Transcripts: The program instructor will review the student’s official educational transcripts and grant credit for previous coursework as appropriate.
