Chippewa Herald: Dylan Goss is going to be nine credits ahead when he starts classes in information technology (IT) programs at Chippewa Valley Technical College next fall. The Chippewa Falls High School senior already has been accepted into CVTC and plans to enroll in the IT-Network Specialist program.
“I eventually plan on getting a second degree from CVTC in software developer too,” Goss said.
That’s when the nine credits he’s earning at the IT Dual-Credit Academy at Chi-Hi will come in handy.
“It’s definitely going to save me some money and some time in classes I won’t have to take,” he added.
Dual credit is nothing new for CVTC and the many partner high schools in its 11-county district that have dual-credit agreements with the college. What’s different at Chi-Hi this year is a cluster of dual-credit classes in the information technology field created at the school, mirroring classes taught at CVTC and taught by a CVTC instructor right at the high school. These courses lead to an IT-User Support Technician Technical diploma.
