Technology Certificate Program Requirements

All Technology Certificate Program Students must have the minimum of a high school Diploma or GED equivalent before they can enroll in a VDCI Technology Certificate Program. Copies of these documents must be submitted to registrar@vdci.edu.

The US Department of Education requires that students enrolling in a VDCI Technology Certificate Program must provide a digital or printed copy of their transcripts, degree, diploma, or GED test results, demonstrating that they meet or exceed the Department of Education's requirements.

When a vocational student does not meet the minimum education requirement, the only test that can be taken in lieu of the minimum education is the “Ability to Benefit” (ATB) exam. Students must earn a passing score according to the ATB exam in order to begin taking courses at VDCI. The Minimum passing scores are Reading: 55, Writing Skill: 60, Math: 34.
