FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - San Juan College and Texas A&M-Commerce
have reached an agreement to offer a bachelor's degree toward a
career in occupational safety.
The partnership, which also includes the Occupational Health
Safety Administration and the Texas Engineering Extension Service,
is a three-step program.
Students begin by attending Texas Engineering Extension Service
classes. Then they can enroll at San Juan College in Farmington,
and finally earn their bachelor's degree at Texas A&M-Commerce.
All the classes can be taken online.
San Juan College instructor Linda Martinez says the program is a
way for students to economically get their bachelor's degree.
Students who complete the program will be prepared for a job as
an OSHA trainer.
