School Notes:

York Technical Institute, a technical school in Pennsylvania, is dedicated to providing high-quality career oriented educational programs. With computer training, chef training (culinary arts school), business, medical assistant, and much more. YTI is Pennsylvania's technology school offering hands-on learning, job placement assistance and financial aid assistance for those who qualify. York Technical Institute first opened its doors in 1967. We originally began as the American Institute of Drafting on Richland Avenue in York. Throughout the 1970's, the Drafting Program (now Computer Aided Drafting and Design) flourished. In 1981, the school moved to larger facilities on West King Street. 1984 brought the addition of the Electronics Technology program to YTI, and in 1985 yet another move to the former Springettsbury Township Elementary School on Whiteford Road in East York. These new facilities presented the school with the opportunity to expand program offerings to include Business curricula: Computerized Accounting and Travel/Tourism. Heating, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration Technology and Industrial Automation/Robotics Technology were added in 1992 and 1995, respectively. To accommodate YTI's burgeoning student body, the Institute built its own 60,000 square foot facility. York Technical Institute moved into its new home on Williams Road in July 1995. Shortly thereafter, the Business Department expanded with the inclusion of Computer Systems Specialist. In 1998, Motorcycle Technology, and Culinary Arts/ Restaurant Management were added. Pastry Arts was added in 2000. In 2002, YTI met the growing needs of the community by starting a Criminal Justice & First Response program. In 2003, YTI opened a branch campus in Lancaster, PA, which is home to YTI's culinary division, L' École de Cuisine. Also offered at the Lancaster Campus is YTI's new Medical Assistant programs. At YTI, students recieve top-quality training and education in the culinary arts in our industry relevant facilities at the Lancaster, Pennsylvania campus. We are committed to preparing our graduates with the skills, knowledge and passion it takes to become accomplished culinarians.

Students Stuck for Four Years to Earn an Associate?s Degree
A recent report revealed that many California community college students take twice as long to get an associate’s degree as is normally required. While community college is less expensive than attending a four-year institution, students who drag out their degree programs lose much of that savings in additional tuition, fees, textbooks, and lost wages. In this article, we examine the reasons why some students take so long to graduate.

Competency-Based Education: Better for Your Academic Success?
In recent years, interest in competency-based education has risen drastically. It is a form of learning in which students engage in self-paced instruction and assessment of aptitudes rather than attending traditional courses and receiving traditional grades. Seen as the future of community college education by some, and as a cheapened version of a real education by others, competency-based education appears to be here to stay.
