Attendance Policy

Students are expected to attend class regularly.  Classes begin promptly as scheduled, and students are expected to be in their assigned classrooms before the scheduled start of classes.

 

For purposes of monitoring satisfactory student attendance, Electrical Training Center will not attempt to distinguish between excused and unexcused absences.  Regardless of the reason for the absences, a student must be present for a substantial amount of class time to successfully complete, programs, courses, and seminars.  Attendance is recorded every hour.  Students must attend 85% of class clock hours to receive a grade for that class. Any student who is absent more than 15% of the scheduled class hours and did not make up the course work will not receive a grade for that class.  Lateness and early departures are recorded as such; students who are late or leave early will lose 15 minutes of an hour rounded up to the higher quarter hour.  Consistent lateness or early departures could potentially put the student at risk of not meeting the attendance requirement of 85%. Due to OSHA regulations, for the 10hr. OSHA Outreach Training For Construction Elec. or the 30hr. OSHA Outreach Training for Construction Ind. Students must not miss any more than 15 minutes of the entire 10 hours or will lose credit for the entire class. This is due to OSHA regulations.

 

Transcripts

Students enrolled in a 300 hour or more program automatically receive a copy of their transcript upon successful completion. This is provided at no charge. Students completing a course or seminar under 300 hours are issued a transcript upon request. Initial requests are at no charge. Any additional student transcripts requested by any other educational institution or any prospective employer is sent, at the student’s request, for a fee of $10 per request. Student must complete a FERPA form authorizing the release of information.

 

 

 

Graduation Requirements

To be eligible for graduation, a student must:

·     Be matriculated in a program of study;

·     Complete all requirements of the program;

·     Have a cumulative grade point average of no less than 2.0; & have achieved 85% quantitative progress.

·     Satisfy all financial obligations to Electrical Training Center;

·     Complete an exit interview with the appropriate departments.

Standards of Conduct and Dress

Students should conduct themselves in a manner that is conducive to a professional learning environment.  School rules and regulations include dressing in a manner appropriate to working in the field of training. The Electrical Training Center shall require all students to wear the appropriate shoes and clothing as required for an electrician or HVAC/R technician. This includes no hoodies, shorts, tank-tops. Sneakers are prohibited during lab instruction.  Students who are improperly dressed will not be admitted to class and will be marked absent for the day.

Confidentiality & Student Access to their Records.

Information regarding a student’s academic record is considered confidential.  It will not be released to a third party without the written consent of the student. Written consent must be provided by the student in the form of an “Information Disclosure Form” which will be given to the student by Electrical Training Center. Students have the right to request access to their records. Students wishing to appeal or amend their records must submit in writing to the Director a request for a formal hearing as outlined in FERPA. 

 

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The Electrical Training Center Inc. adheres to the FERPA policy and regulations as outlined in The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99):FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are "eligible students."

  • Parents or eligible students have the right to inspect and review the student's education records maintained by Electrical Training Center. Schools are not required to provide copies of records unless, for reasons such as great distance, it is impossible for parents or eligible students to review the records. Schools may charge a fee for copies.
  • Parents or eligible students have the right to request that a school correct records which they believe to be inaccurate or misleading. If Electrical Training Center decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student then has the right to a formal hearing. After the hearing, if Electrical Training Center still decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student has the right to place a statement with the record setting forth his or her view about the contested information.
  • Generally, schools must have written permission from the parent or eligible student in order to release any information from a student's education record. However, FERPA allows schools to disclose those records, without consent, to the following parties or under the following conditions* (34 CFR § 99.31):
    • School officials with legitimate educational interest;
    • Other schools to which a student is transferring;
    • Specified officials for audit or evaluation purposes;
    • Appropriate parties in connection with financial aid to a student;
    • Organizations conducting certain studies for or on behalf of Electrical Training Center;
    • Accrediting organizations;
    • To comply with a judicial order or lawfully issued subpoena;
    • Appropriate officials in cases of health and safety emergencies; and
    • State and local authorities, within a juvenile justice system, pursuant to specific State law.

Schools may disclose, without consent, "directory" information such as a student's name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, honors and awards, and dates of attendance. However, schools must tell parents and eligible students about directory information and allow parents and eligible students a reasonable amount of time to request that Electrical Training Center not disclose directory information about them. Schools must notify parents and eligible students annually of their rights under FERPA. The actual means of notification (special letter, inclusion in a PTA bulletin, student handbook, or newspaper article) is left to the discretion of each school.

*If at any time an outside party, as listed above, inspects a student’s file, a form letter stating who inspected it, when they inspected it, and the reason for inspection will be placed in the file.

Leave of Absence

A leave of absence can be granted in cases of illness, accident, and death in the family or other special circumstances that make attendance impossible or impractical.  Students requesting a leave of absence must complete a “Change of Status Form” that includes a valid reason for the leave of absence, the date the leave starts, and their anticipated return to Electrical Training Center.  All leaves of absence are to be documented in writing, and approved.  A leave of absence cannot exceed 180 days in a 12 month period or one-half the program length, whichever is shorter.  Students will attest in documentation to understanding the procedures and implications for return (or failure to do so). 

 

Withdrawal from School

A student wishing to withdraw from school and receive a refund calculation must contact the business office.  Failure of the student to immediately notify Electrical Training Center in writing of withdrawal may delay refund of tuition due pursuant to Section 5002 of the Education Law.  Any student withdrawing from a class are requested to complete a “Change of Status” form.

Dismissal from School

Electrical Training Center reserves the right to dismiss any student for the following reasons:

  • Attendance does not meet school requirements;
  • Academic progress does not meet school standards;
  • Financial obligations are not maintained;
  • school standards of conduct or dress are not maintained.

Electrical Training Center has zero tolerance for the following verbal or physical actions and conduct which are contrary to the objectives of Electrical Training Center and

  • insubordination towards the staff and/or faculty, harassment and/or derogatory language involving, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and/or religious beliefs; excessive expletive language, threats of physical attacks, or any other act of this nature directed towards Faculty, Administration, or other student(s)
  • the use of intoxicating liquor or illegal drugs,
  • stealing and /or malicious destruction of school or student property,

 

Terminated students who request re-admittance will be considered on a case-by-case basis.  Previous attendance, academic performance, financial history, and general attitude will be considered.

 

Reinstatement (All Students)

A student who successfully appeals termination will be on probation for two weeks, at which time he/she will be subject to the same requirements as any other student on probation.  The student is reminded that graduation requirements will apply.  Students who are reinstated from withdrawal status will not be placed on probation unless otherwise indicated.

 

Program/Course/Seminars - No Shows, Incompletes, Withdrawals, Repetitions

No Show – any student who enrolls in a program, course, or seminar but does not attend, will be liable for the registration fee based on the enrollment agreement.

 

Incompletes (“I”) will be given to any student who does not completely fulfill the requirements (grades and hours) of a course.  A grade will be substituted for the “I” if the student successfully completes the unfinished work and or hours prior to graduation.  Failure to complete the work required for a course before graduation will result in the letter grade of “F”.

 

Withdrawals of no charge, with the exception of the registration fee and materials & supplies, are allowed for any student who withdraws within the first week of class (or within 15% if the course falls under the Mini-Refund Policy).  A student can withdraw before the midpoint of the class and receive a “W”, but is still responsible for any tuition liability based on the enrollment agreement.  Students who withdraw after the midpoint will automatically receive a Withdraw/Fail (“W/F”) for the course and be liable for tuition based on the enrollment agreement.

 

Courses and seminars may be repeated at the student’s expense. Any grades received in prior sessions will not be substituted with the repeated sessions.
