The Tech-Prep Associate Degree Program (TPAD) at the Community College of Rhode Island (CCRI) in Warwick, is a high school/community college partnership providing high school students with an alternative program of study focused on goal setting, basic academic skills development, and the skills needed to pursue a career in a technical, business or allied health field. Students are assessed in the 10th grade and begin the program in grade 11. Upon completion, students are guaranteed acceptance into the technical programs at CCRI. The first sections of this program guide to the TPAD provide a directory of personnel and over 30 participating institutions, a timeline of activities, and information on student selection. Next, the curriculum guide/course of study at the secondary level and technical course outlines for the postsecondary level are presented, along with descriptions of options, qualifications and salaries for seven career programs: chemical technology, electronics, engineering, electronic engineering, instrumentation technology, machine design, and machine processes. The final section describes the Business/Office Administration program, including information on student selection, as well as postsecondary courses of study for the business administration, accounting, law enforcement, office administration, legal administrative assistant, and medical administrative assistant programs. Placement test samples, student forms and applications, the TPAD articulation agreement, and a list of advisory board members are appended. (MAB)
