Occupational Advisory Committees
AVTEC recognizes the importance of preparing students with the necessary skills to excel in their future careers. To achieve this goal, each program has an Occupational Advisory Committee (OAC) consisting of representatives from industry, educational institutions, and community partners. The OAC’s primary role is to provide guidance and relevancy on the training curriculum to ensure it aligns with the current industry trends and requirements.
In addition, the OAC actively supports AVTEC in keeping its classrooms and labs up-to-date with the latest equipment students will encounter in their future workplaces. This collaboration ensures that students receive hands-on training with equipment that is relevant to their chosen field.
Overall, AVTEC values the partnership with its OAC members and recognizes their crucial role in ensuring that its program remain relevant and effective in preparing students for successful careers.
To ensure that AVTEC’s program align with the latest industry practices and trends, each program has an Occupational Advisory Committee (OAC) comprising external members who possess expertise in the occupational program. The OAC members meet annually to review the curriculum’s relevancy and appropriateness.
The OAC members can be recommended by existing committee members, AVTEC instructors/staff, or individuals who voluntarily request to participate on a committee. Each OAC consists of at least three members external to the institutions, providing a diverse range of perspectives and expertise.
Overall, the OAC members’ appointments ensure that AVTEC’s programs remain up-to-date and relevant to the industry’s changing demands. AVTEC values the contribution and appreciates their efforts in preparing students for successful careers.
