4.7.5 Credit Equivalency for Professional Training

adopted: Oct-1993
last revised: Jun-2008

Academic course credit for professional training events in some disciplines and technical fields may be granted if the event is offered by Richland Community College and/or one or more of the College’s training partners. A training partner is a professional organization or other authorized training provider recognized by the College. This partner ensures that the training meets predetermined standards. In some instances, training must be delivered by certified instructors as dictated by program/curricular requirements. The training must meet all objectives of the relevant course(s) in order to receive credit, as determined by faculty responsible for the content area. Approved credit will be posted to the student's record after a minimum of eight (8) semester hours of 100-level or above credit has been earned at the College.
