On behalf of Western Technical College (Western Tech), I want to update you on the status of classes in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic. Western Tech has been in frequent contact with state and local authorities and, as a result, has determined that its programs requiring hands-on instruction that cannot be delivered online can continue to be delivered on its campus. Accordingly, Western Tech has decided to reopen its campus on June 1, 2020 for the hands-on components of the following programs: AAS Electronics Engineering Technology, AAS Physical Therapist Assistant, AOS Refrigeration and HVAC Technology, AOS Diesel Mechanics, AOS Automotive Technology, Certificate of Completion in Commercial Driver Training, Certificate of Completion in Advanced Welding Technology, Certificate of Completion in Medical/Clinical Assisting, Certificate of Completion in Diesel Advanced Technology Education, and Certificate of Completion in Massage Therapy. The BS in Nursing Program will re-introduce the hand-on components at the campus beginning July 6, 2020. Didactic hours will continue to be taught online for the foreseeable future. We hope the reopening of the campus for hands-on instruction provides you with an opportunity to return to a bit of normalcy.
I also want to inform you about the safety guidance and protocols Western Tech is implementing to help mitigate and minimize the spread of COVID-19 in our campus community when we reopen. Please note that these protocols may be updated based on new guidance and information from the CDC, the State of Texas, or local officials.
