Student Code of Conduct, Rights and Responsibilities

AVTEC provides long and short-term training programs that upon completion of training will increase students' ability to secure employment. Embedded in the mission and values (guiding principles) of the Alaska Vocational Technical Center, is the desire to create a supportive learning environment that is culturally dynamic and values respect, accountability, fairness, professionalism, and citizenship while preparing students with career and technical skills to succeed in the Alaska workforce.
