The ASD program provides an intense curriculum consisting of 67 credit hours. This program includes over 350 hours of hands-on experience. Currently the courses are offered in half-day sessions. Students attend class from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., or 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday each week.
In addition to class hours, students will have homework and teamwork exercises. Students within an individual program take courses in the same sequence, beginning and ending together. Courses from this program cannot be taken as stand-alone courses.
The ASD program structure enables students to complete in 13 months what would take up to two years at a traditional college or technical school.
