Pathway Certificates

BTC Certificates

Courses are offered in a variety of formats, including traditional (face to face), ITV (interactive distance learning), online and hybrid.  These delivery systems should be selected carefully, as different methods of delivery require students to address their studies different ways. These following alternative delivery systems should be selected carefully:

Traditional (Face-to-Face)

These courses typically meet several times a week over the course of a semester.  Instructors meet face-to-face with students in a traditional classroom or laboratory setting.

ITV (Interactive Distance Learning)

Courses are offered over the compressed video system in specially equipped classrooms.

Hybrid (Combination of Face-to-Face and Online)

A hybrid course is a course in which the content is delivered in a blend of face-to-face and online. Between 40% and 60% of the content will be delivered online. Students need regular access to a computer with a high speed Internet Connection.
