CAVIAT Central Programs
- Last Updated: 14 September 2015
The Coconino Association for Vocations, Industry and Technology (CAVIAT) has partnered with CCC and Flagstaff Unified School District to provide co-enrollment classes for high school juniors and seniors in structured Programs of Study (see below) at no cost to students. These courses are offered from 1:00 pm to 4:00 at the CCC Flagstaff campuses. Most programs offer the opportunity for students to earn college and/or industry certifications. Some industry certifications require additonal outside work and costs. CAVIAT will sometimes pay for certification costs but approval must be obtained through CAVIAT and when coupled with Dual Enrollment core classes at FUSD provide an excellent start on earning an Associate's degree through the College.
