This course is offered on a pass/no pass basis. A grade of P represents satisfactory
achievement which would have been graded C or better on the regular grading scale, but is
given instead of a letter grade.
Students who successfully complete the program will receive a
passing score based on attendance, attitude, and progress in training as rated by the on-site
instructor. Timeliness of reporting by student and trainer may also affect the grade for the
course. A Monthly Timesheet & Trainer Report is completed by the on-site instructor. Student
Activity reports are completed by the student and submitted to the PCC Skills Training
Coordinator regularly. Periodic visits by a PCC Skills Training Coordinator are made with a
written progress report generated.
