Security Guard Certification

Posted by Kapros, Samuel G - July 31, 2014 -

Public Act #04-192 now mandates that all state of Connecticut security officers complete an 8-hour training course for certification. This course covers an overview of private security, public safety issues, search ans seizure, use of force, basic criminal justice, and basic first aid. Participants are required to complete a written exam at the end of the course with a passing grade of 75% or higher. Upon successful completion, students apply for a Security Officer Identification Card from the state of Connecticut. Application requirements will be reviewed in class.
Please note: the course tuition does not include the approximate $170 fee paid to the state for the identification card. Applicants are required to submit two sets of fingerprints with their state security guard applications when they apply (may be administered at your local police department). Required for class: state of CT-issued photo ID, pen/pencil, highlighter, and lunch.

Scheduling Exams with Disability Services

Posted by Woolford, Adam R - January 16, 2014 -
0

Exams are scheduled at Disability Services (DS) in the Academic Support Center (ASC).
Exams must be taken during the hours of 8:30 AM to 5:45 PM Monday through Thursday and 9 AM to 1:45 PM on Fridays. 
Steps to Request Test/Exam to be taken in the ASC

Request to take the exam in the ASC by completing the “Academic Adjustment Testing” form (GREEN FORM) at least 2 business days before exam to ensure that space is available.
Remind the instructor to make a copy of the exam available in the ASC.
Arrive on time for the test. Failure to arrive on time compromises the DS’s testing schedule for that day.
If the student is more than 30 minutes late for the exam, the test will be returned to the instructor and the student will need to reschedule another time to take the exam. The instructor must give DS approval of the new time via email, phone, or in person.
Call the ASC (860-255-3570) 24 hours in advance if you need to cancel or reschedule the testing time.
Students must alert the instructor that they will need to change the time of the test and the instructor must submit their approval via email to a disability services staff person.

Students should schedule their exams on the same date/time as their class.  Exceptions to this requirement may be made due to DS’s inability to have a scribe, reader, or computer available at the requested time or due to a student’s academic schedule not permitting full use of allotted extended time. Students needing extended time should determine their start time to ensure that exams are completed by 5:45 PM, Monday through Thursday and by 1:45 PM on Fridays.
Exams are taken in one sitting unless an instructor has made prior arrangements with the DS to divide the exam into sections
Students approved for additional test accommodations, such as scribes, readers, computers, and/or other adaptive technology, will need to request these accommodations with 7 days advance notice when they schedule their exams.

The DS office adheres to the College’s policy on academic honesty and integrity. If the DS office believes that a violation has occurred, the student’s professor will be notified.

Appropriate Documentation

Posted by Woolford, Adam R - March 8, 2012 -

Obtain a copy of your most recent evaluations (psycho-educational evaluation or medical report). School districts will keep records on file for 7 years. An IEP and/or 504 are not sufficient documentation of a disability. Current documentation should preferably be conducted using adult testing instruments (WAIS). A qualified professional (e.g. licensed psychologist, medical doctor) must conduct the evaluation and provide documentation of a disability. Documentation must be appropriate and recent, generally within three years of the current date, and should include:

Qualifications of the evaluator
Dates of testing
Comprehensive assessment
Specific diagnosis
Clinical evidence of a disability
Rationale for recommended accommodations

For more information regarding appropriate documentation, see the Guide for Students with Disabilities.
