  Articulation Agreement

  The Arioch Center @ Wentworth signed an articulation agree-
  ment with Local 103 International Brotherhood of Electrical
  Workers (IBEW) to offer an Associate of Applied Science in
  Engineering Technology (AENT) to graduates of the Inside
  Wireman Apprenticeship Program.
     The agreement enables graduates of the Joint Apprenticeship
  and Training Committee (JATC) of Greater Boston to advance
  their careers through a professional degree program designed
  to enhance skills, supplementing the content of the JATC.
     Recognizing apprentices’ full-time work schedules, the pro-
  gram is structured so that all courses are offered on Saturdays
  at the IBEW Training Facility in Dorchester. Students will take
  two courses each semester for five semesters, and will complete
  the associate degree program in less than two years.
