Disability Services

AVTEC complies with Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Section 504, and Title IX and will make reasonable accommodations for students with needs. It is the responsibility of the student to make their needs known. The most important factor in your success at AVTEC is to seek help early and advocate for yourself. Students with a disability that need services have the responsibility to:

Request the services and provide appropriate disability documentation.

Meet with the Disability Services Officer early regarding your accommodation needs.

Talk with your assigned counselor and instructors about in-class accommodations.

Follow the AVTEC procedures for arranging accommodations.

Communication with the DSO if there are any questions or difficulties with the process.

Procedures for arranging for accommodations begin with a student making their needs known, providing documentation from a doctor or therapist of the disability, and providing details of requested accommodation(s) required. Note, the physical requirements for each training program may not be able to accommodate a particular disability due to the nature of the training program and safety of students.
