State Certifications: All courses offered by Health Tech have been authorized by one of two separate state agencies. The Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission (NPEC) sets standards to ensure that all postsecondary schools are educationally sound and financially stable. The Commission inspects the school annually to ensure compliance with all regulations. The Georgia Medical Care Foundation (GMCF) examines and oversees all Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) programs in Georgia.
Credit for Previous Education/Training: Students will be given a tuition credit for prerequisite courses successfully completed at another school. You will need to provide a certificate or transcript. These classes can then be exempt from their programs if not taken more than three years ago. Health Tech of Georgia is not an accredited institution. Credits earned at Health Tech of Georgia are not guaranteed to be accepted for transfer to another institution.
Attendance Policies: Students enrolled in prerequisite and basic courses may miss only two class sessions. Three absences are permitted during advanced courses. All clinical practice, if required, must be completed and verified before receiving a certificate, no sessions may be missed. In the event of excessive absences or extenuating circumstances, such as prolonged illness or injury, the student may begin the next class available (doctors note is required). All money paid to the date of withdrawal will be credited to that program for documented medical emergencies. Class work that is missed is the student’s responsibility.
Grading System: A minimum 75% average must be maintained on all class work to be eligible to take the final exam. An “academic warning” will be issued at mid-term if grades are below average. Students must score at least 75% on the final exam to pass the course. Students not achieving passing marks are encouraged to repeat the class. Some programs require off-site clinical practice. Clinical skills, attendance, and attitude are evaluated as excellent, satisfactory, or need improvement. Clinical hours may not be missed. Student transcripts may be requested at the front office and will be ready that day or no later than the following school day, providing the student is in good standing.
Code of Conduct: Any conduct determined by school officials to be detrimental to the school or other students or behavior that is unprofessional will result in permanent dismissal. This includes weapons on campus without a permit, which MUST be on file at HTG, vulgar language, or assaults of any kind.
Dress Code: Students are required to wear ceil blue or navy-blue uniforms and closed toe shoes to all classes. If ‘out of uniform’, pay at the front office a $2.00 fine (donated to charity).
Career Services: Health Tech of Georgia assists students in identifying potential employers, completing an application, developing resumes, and preparing for job interviews. The Employment Skills curriculum also incorporates the personal and ethical values and professionalism important in maintaining a job and advancing in their career. This training must be completed by all students. The school does not guarantee a job to a graduate; however, we maintain a comprehensive list of offices, hospitals, facilities, and agencies in the eight-county area to guide the students in their search for job opportunities. Students are requested to notify the school when they accept employment, and forms are provided on our website, healthtechofga.com/contactus.htm. Please complete this form once you are employed.
