MRI Physics for Technologists
Non-Degree Course
University of Vermont in Burlington, VT
This online course is designed primarily for radiologic technologists who would like to learn more about MRI physics with the goal of becoming an MR technologist. In addition, it would also potentially be very useful for current MR technologists who will be taking ARRT board exams in the future or would simply benefit from a more comprehensive and coherent MR physics training. Students in adjacent fields (biomedical engineering, radiological assistants) may also find this practical physics course highly valuable. Textbook readings will be combined with supplemental 3D animations and video lectures, flexible tutoring time with the instructor, as well as homework exercises specifically intended to either prepare you for the ARRT exam or develop practical skills for working as an MR technologists. Despite the online format, the instructor offers a weekly individual check-in discussion to help ensure that students are successfully progressing in the course. This is the first in a series of courses in development for the education of future MR technologists. The other courses will include Cross Sectional Anatomy and Pathology (taught by UVM radiologists), MRI Lab (in the UVM MRI research lab), and MRI Practicum. The goal is to establish an efficient and effective path to better prepare all future MR technologists.

Diesel Technology
Certificate (CERT)
Vermont Technical College in Randolph, VT
The certificate program allows students to begin a successful career in the heavy-duty diesel service industry, which is experiencing faster than average employment growth currently. Graduates who pursue a career in diesel service perform inspections, and repair or overhaul any type of diesel engine, often found in buses, trucks and farming equipment. Skills gained in the diesel certificate can also be applied to the mechanical needs of an agriculture business that uses large-scale farming machinery. Diesel engine repair and maintenance is becoming more complex as more electronic systems are used to control equipment function. Students in the Diesel Certificate program will perform hands-on activities using technology and learn critical thinking to help them enter the workforce with necessary skills, as well as the ability to grow and adapt as technology continues to evolve. Students who graduate from the certificate program can transition seamlessly into the associate degree, should they chose to advance their education. Federal approval for student financial aid is currently under review. This certificate program allows the student to begin a successful career in the heavy-duty diesel service industry without taking additional math, science, English, and general education courses. Upon completion of the certificate program, the student can achieve an associate degree in diesel technology with one additional year of study. The student pursuing the certificate should be cautioned that most upscale original equipment manufacturer’s dealerships (Milton CAT, NORTRAX, etc.) require a minimum of an associate degree before they will hire graduates.

Our Professional Pilot Technology program is the first collegiate program: To offer a bachelor’s Aviation degree program in the state of Vermont, starting in 2012 To incorporate pre-solo spin training for all students To include seaplane training and ratings in the BS degree To incorporate conventional landing gear (tail draggers) in the Commercial pilot training syllabus To include aerobatic instructional options during Commercial pilot training syllabus as an option To have a multi-engine amphibian for Multi-Engine Land and Sea training & ratings To offer all 9 available FAA certificates & ratings, including 3 flight instructor ratings To offer VA benefits for aviation training in the state of Vermont The Professional Pilot Technology program provides flight training courses in cooperation with Vermont Flight Academy at Burlington International Airport. Offered FAA certificates and ratings include: Private, Instrument, Commercial (Single-Engine Land & Sea), Multi-Engine (Land & Sea), and Certified Flight Instructor (Airplane, Instrument, & Multi-Engine). The coursework combines basic and advanced airmanship skills to provide safe operations for all types of flying. In partnership with Vermont Flight Academy, students can expect to complete approximately 250-275 hours of flight time and will become certified flight instructors during their junior year. Graduates of this program are prepared for a variety of career opportunities in aviation. Students attain necessary flight credentials for numerous cockpit positions including flight education, corporate flying, charter operations, commuter airlines, and, ultimately, positions with domestic and international air carriers. In addition, students may also qualify for employment in many other aviation industry positions such as managers, dispatchers, simulator trainers, and marketers for aviation or related companies. The educational objectives for graduates of the Bachelor of Science in Professional Pilot Technology program include: Providing the academic and professional certification needed to achieve success in the dynamic and growing aviation industry Providing knowledge of contemporary world-wide aviation industry issues Providing specific flying skills to attain FAA certificates and ratings that allow for employment as pilots and flight crew within the international aviation industry Enhancing critical thinking and decision-making skills necessary for safe and effective flying Providing professional preparation to building a commitment to lifelong learning with a focus on the continuous development of professional skills A student with a Bachelor of Science in Professional Pilot Technology will be able to: Demonstrate the theoretical knowledge and flight skills necessary to attain FAA certificates and ratings in Private, Instrument, Commercial, Flight Instructor, and Multi-Engine as well as training or endorsements in taildragger (conventional gear), aerobatic, high performance, complex, and seaplane aircraft Understand and interpret meteorological data to ensure safe and efficient flight operations Operate as a crew member Function and communicate effectively as part of a multi-disciplinary team. Understand leadership roles and step into those roles as a confident leader Understand the technological, political, and historical developments constituting the evolution of modern aviation Accurately analyze and interpret data from aerodynamic, mathematical, and scientific principles Completion of the aviation degree entails intensive motivation and commitment. Most pilot certificates or ratings are completed in a 14-week semester. This may require flying 4-5 times each week to complete the courses. As an FAA-approved 141 flight school, the FAA requires stage checks and short written exams for each stage in every course. The Chief Flight Instructor and their assistants are required to follow the published milestones and stage checks for every student to ensure proper completion. The student must make up cancellations or delays on weekends and during scheduled breaks if necessary and must be available to fly seven days per week, including some flights at night. It is vital to success in the program that the student understands that consequences will incur for noncompliance of all scheduling requests, failure to meet milestones, and stage check failures. If continuous interventions are necessary, the student can expect grade reductions or dismissal from the program. Compliance with all schedules, FAA regulations, and course syllabi is a major part of the training for a career in the field of aviation.
