Broward College Initiates First Career Dual Enrollment Program with High School Students

39 Miramar High School Students Participate in Dual Enrollment Aviation Progra

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (September 19, 2018) – Miramar High School students in grades 10-12 began taking classes at Broward College this fall thanks to the College's first career dual enrollment program at the Emil Buehler Aviation Institute on the Judson A. Samuels South Campus in Pembroke Pines. Of the 39 students, a notable 30 percent of the cohort are female.

The first of its kind in Broward County, the high schoolers enrolled in the Broward College Postsecondary Adult Vocational (PSAV) Aviation Maintenance program will complete one Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certificate, either Airframe or Powerplant, by the time they graduate Miramar High School. The participating students can then continue their education at Broward College to complete their Associate of Science (AS) degree in Aviation Maintenance Management and have the future opportunity to obtain their Bachelor of Science degree in Aerospace Science by 2024.

"Broward College is committed to offering programs like this that will benefit students' education and the future of our community," said Broward College President Gregory Haile. "Thanks to our strong relationship with Broward County Public Schools, these students will have the opportunity to become initial leaders in the aviation industry which is one of the fastest growing industries in the region."

Broward College's Career Dual Enrollment program is supported by many renowned local industry members, such as GA Telesis, CTS Engines, South Florida Aviation Maintenance Council and AAR Corp.
