CGTC Students Earn Automative Certification

CGTC Students Earn Automative Certification

Four Automotive Technology Program students at Central Georgia Technical College’s Milledgeville Campus recently volunteered to take the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) exam. The students, Blake Green, Robert Huguley, Payton Fuller and George Pennington, passed the exam. 

The ASE exam is normally taken by technicians who have been employed in the field for several years. To get a certification, a technician must pass the exam and have two years of professional experience. The education and training these students received at CGTC will substitute for one year of experience. 

Passing the ASE exam along with their diplomas from CGTC will provide the students with a competitive edge when searching for employment. 

Ga. DOT Welcomes Public Comment on Improvement Program

 

The Georgia Department of Transportation (GA DOT) will be presenting the Draft FY 2012 - 2015 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) for public review and comment. 

The STIP is a four-year program that specifies federally funded transportation projects for non-urban communities in rural Georgia for Fiscal Years 2012, 2013 2014 and 2015.  These projects include, but are not limited to, new construction, improvements, and maintenance for interstates and state routes, and bridges.  Additional projects include bicycle and pedestrian projects, transportation enhancement projects and public transit projects.

License Plate Revote Opens Monday

 

ATLANTA (AP) -- The public is again invited to weigh in on Georgia's new license plate design. 

Online voting will reopen at 3 p.m. Monday.

Gov. Nathan Deal had planned to announce the winner of an earlier design contest last Friday, but the state scrapped its plans over public confusion on whether the motto "In God We Trust" would be on the plate.
