I taught an apprentice programs in two different colleges, they are mechanical, electronic and electrical programs. They were a 4 and 5 year program. Credits could be transferred to a engineering degree sponsor by unions, corporations and the state, plus were state ran controlled, certified and certificated. We are behind compared to other countries on education by design. It called dumb down America. It been an attack on unions and education by the every same groups that are complaining about no train personnel. Need to watch what you wish for!
