In these unique times of uncertainty, Tidewater Tech has adjusted their educational training to provide students with online distance learning. This temporary shift in curriculum enables students to safely practice social distance without discontinuing their educational journey.

Tidewater Tech is a career training school that specializes in essential trade vocations including:

  • Welding
  • Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC)
  • Auto Technician
  • Building Maintenance and Repair and Welding.

Administrators and campus leadership have worked tirelessly to create a strategy that will enable learners to continue their schooling while being provided support during these unpredictable times. We have equipped instructors and our students with digital distance learning tools such as ebooks, conference lines and work packets that provide students with assignments and directions for guided study.

“Our students are interacting more now than they ever have; it’s incredible!  We certainly have opened our eyes and minds to the future possibilities of technology and the benefits,” states Campus Executive Director Paula Massey. “I think one of the most valuable lessons we might take away from just this situation is use what you have to make it better. You don’t always have to create a grand show or shine a spotlight, sometimes what you have right in your lap.”

While practicing this impermanent tactic of distance learning, Tidewater Tech students will still have the opportunity to speak directly with fellow classmates and instructors in real-time using group conferencing and traditional electronic communication. “Go Live” features enable students to interact with one another and assignment support from teachers. Students should check with their instructors to ensure they have all the tools they need to continue their education through this unique experience.
