CV-TEC’s Adult Literacy and Training Programs offer courses to prepare adults for: the GED tests for a High School Equivalency Diploma; employment in health services, CNA and Home Health Aide; manufacturing skills training, Assembling Industry: Manufacturing & Education (A-I-M-E: 8.0) and Welding; certificates of employment skills, National Work Readiness Credential and Customer Service; Introductory and Intermediate Computer Skills; and college preparation through College Connections.

Other courses are being developed and reviewed to meet future needs, all in collaboration with our community partners: Clinton Community College, Literacy Volunteers, Plattsburgh Library System, the OneWorkSource and partnerships throughout the local business community.

Not having a high-school diploma is a serious roadblock to any kind of job advancement. Getting a GED opens doors.

In 2014, a new exam will be required, and new standards will have to be met. Old scores for completion of parts of the current exam will no longer be accepted. A fee to take the exam may be required after 2013.

Why not get it done as soon as possible? CV-TEC’s adult literacy staff of dedicated teachers is ready to help.

If you or someone you know could benefit from the opportunities offered by CV-TEC’s Adult Literacy programs, call: 561-0430, Ext. 3088.

Accident reports

TO THE EDITOR: I recently went to my local grocery store and on returning to my car found a man standing there saying, “You hit my car, cops are on the way, and if you leave you will be charged with leaving the scene of a crime.”

“What crime,” says I. “I did not hit you or anyone else.”

I was flabbergasted. He points to longitudinal marks on his car caused when and by whom? Not by me. A cop arrives, assesses the situation and also notes a lesion on our right front of car and also says there is paint transfer on your car. I do not see any.
