UWEC, CVTC agreement hopes to help students in law enforcement

By  | 

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- A new agreement between UW-Eau Claire and Chippewa Valley Technical College is hoping to help students who are planning careers in law enforcement in Wisconsin get into the workforce more quickly.

UWEC criminal justice majors who have completed at least 60 college credits now can apply to earn certification through the CVTC’s Law Enforcement Academy. The 19 credits they earn at CVTC can transfer back to UWEC.

Officials with UWEC say it will help students secure the required academy certification while still making it possible for them to graduate in four years.

Under the new partnership agreement, UWEC students can complete the CVTC academy anytime during their junior or senior year, after they have earned 60 credits. While completing the academy, they will remain UW-Eau Claire students but will not take any UW-Eau Claire courses during that semester.
