Military Certificates Program (Leadership, Logistics, & Dangerous Materials Handling)
The Military Certificates Program prepares students with the technical skills required for successful execution of duties in the fields of Military Leadership, Military Logistics, and Military Dangerous Materials Handling.
Military technical skills involve complex systems, hardware and technologies that possess ever increasing civilian applications. Dependent upon critical thought processes and the ability to utilize these evolving skills, today’s military personnel are engaged in mission planning, risks assessment, identifying potential hazards, supervising preparations, identifying and maintaining assets, training personnel, and conducting and supervising additional duties. This certificate program encompasses and addresses these required skills.
The Military Certificates program consist individual certificates in Military Leadership, Military Logistics, and Military Dangerous Materials Handling. Each certificate requires the successful completion of 30 credit hours. Students may seek an individual certificate or complete all three.
All courses within each certificate are commonly offered through formal military training and installation schools throughout the Department of Defense. Transfer credit may be awarded for previous attendance and successful completion of approved courses through those programs. Upon verification of documentation and acceptance by Barton Community College, students may transfer in up to 24 credit hours toward certificate completion. Students are also provided the opportunity to complete several courses within each certificate via the Internet through Barton’s online program at www.Bartonline.org.
For residency requirements a total of 6 credit hours must be completed with Barton Community College from the list of courses in the student’s selected Certificate. An overall 2.0 grade point average must be achieved for graduation.
