    I will take full credit for the train being off the tracks.

    To be fair .. we've had plenty of players that showed off their trade (masonry) skills on the court!

    That subject needs to be moved to the 'Welders' forum!

    Great song/timeless lyrics… and “welders” mention.

    That was my thought. Would they be eligible per NCAA rules if they were taking those courses.
    It is all dependent on how bad the school wants to restructure its programs.

    If you want a model look at Pitt State and how one can transition into a four year program easily.

    That is correct you can get either a Certificate in certain skill or a 2-year Associate Degree where you take some general studies in addition to the technical certification you seek. The technical courses are identical and the students work together on those whether they are working for the Certificate or for the Associates Degree.

    My grandson had 2 graduations this spring. One from Southeast High School and one from WSU Tech with a Certificate in Welding.

    Whether or not some of their offerings could be incorporated into a 4-year degree program I don't know. But most of the WSU Tech students are not interested in 4-years of college at least at this point. If they have their Associates degree they would have 2 more years to finish up if they decided they want to go that route.
    Your last paragraph sums up the issue. Concurrent enrollment isn’t as easily accomplished as it sounds.
