Certificate of Completion
Students who have successfully completed all course requirements including basic skills requirements of the program will be issued a certificate of completion which includes the name of the career technical program and the total hours of the course or program.
State Board of Education Rules identifies the basic skills requirements for post secondary-adult career technical education programs. These requirements are as follows:
- All students who are enrolled in a post-secondary career technical program of 450 hours or more shall complete a basic skills test within the first six (6) weeks after admission into the program. The examination designated by Miami-Dade County Public Schools is the Test of Adult Basic Education.
- Minimum basic skills grade levels in reading, mathematics and language are defined for each career technical or vocational program.
- Students who lack the required minimal level of basic skills as measured by the designated examination shall be provided with instruction specifically designed to correct the deficiencies.
- Upon completion of the instruction which is tailored to meet the individual needs, students shall be retested by using the same examination that was used for initial testing.
