Placement Test Information


Augusta Technical College's commitment to excellence extends to each student.

This guarantee applies to graduates who are employed in their field of training. It is in effect for a period of two years after graduation, and includes those graduates who have failed to pass a State of Georgia required licensing examination within two years after graduation.

To inquire or to file a claim under this warranty, the employer in conjunction with the graduate should contact the Vice President of Academic Affairs at (706) 771-4020 to discuss the need for retraining. A letter from the employer on company letterhead must be submitted to the Vice President of Academic Affairs noting that the graduate is deficient in one or more areas as defined in the Technical College System of Georgia standards.
