Additional Requirements for Program Completion
Students will also participate in specialized courses and inclusive practical experiences in employment, independent living, wellness, and socialization.
Transfer credits will be determined on a case by case basis. The Core Management Team will review course description and requirements from another CTP program that is being considered for transfer to determine if the course can be awarded CCOS transfer credit.
The Plan of Study outlines a program that can be completed in 3 years. However, if there are proven extenuating circumstances that inhibit a student’s ability to complete the program within the 3-year timeline, a student will be allowed up to 5 years to complete the certificate program.
