COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS

NATURAL TRANSITION

As a community college, one of our goals is to provide real world, hands-on training that you can use in the workplace. To do this, we have partnered with businesses and industries to ensure that we are providing the most recent high-tech, state-of-the-art career training facilities, equipment and instruction. Partnerships include: Banner Health Systems, Cisco Systems, Honda, Salt River Project, the State of Arizona, the U.S. Geologic Survey and many more.

The size of a university can be overwhelming. At GateWay, our campus is small, providing the opportunity to acclimate to a college environment, to understand what is expected and to familiarize yourself with the resources needed to make the most of your educational experience.

LOWER TUITION RATES

Many of our instructors have received the highest degree in their discipline and continue to work in their field, bringing real-world experience to the classroom.

Tuition for attending GateWay is often one fourth the cost to attend one of Arizona’s three state universities. For current tuition rates visit: www.gatewaycc.edu/Pay/Tuition.

TRANSFER OPTIONS GateWay offers courses, programs and associate degree that are guaranteed to transfer to any one of Arizona’s three state universities (see page 11). Always check with an advisor, as some courses and programs may transfer to other colleges and universities nationwide.

SMALLER CLASS SIZE Most classes average 20-30 students in size at GateWay, whereas the same lower-division class at a university may average 100-125 students. A smaller class size increases the instructor’s opportunity to assist students on a one-on-one basis.

QUALITY INSTRUCTORS

LIFELONG LEARNING Whether you’ve decided to pursue a career-training program or are just interested in refreshing your computer skills, taking a yoga class or learning the basics of car maintenance, we’re committed to providing opportunities for all areas of your life.

CAREER DESCRIPTION Water quality matters. Whether the water is coming out of the faucet in your kitchen or is the output of a manufacturing plant, human safety and local, state and federal requirements mandate that water be of the highest quality and purity, all the time. Key to this process is Water/Wastewater Treatment Technicians, also known as Wastewater Treatment or Collections Operators, Water Treatment or Distribution Operations or Facilities Technicians. The primary job duties of operators and technicians include responsibility for the proper operation and maintenance of a water supply or wastewater treatment facility in order to produce the highest quality water needed for municipal and industrial systems. This means acquiring an in-depth understanding of exactly how machinery and processes work in order to troubleshoot problems, streamline operations, repair or correct breakdowns and in general, make everything run smoothly. This requires operators and technicians to acquire a high level of math and science

proficiency and a thorough knowledge of water quality standards, plant operation and maintenance procedures in order to succeed in this profession. To keep things running smoothly you must care deeply about accuracy, attention to detail and the importance of your work to human life and safety. Working under pressure, often on deadline and many times without supervision, operators and technicians must efficiently manage workflow for superior water quality — without fail.

HOW TO GET STARTED The Water Technologies program at GateWay Community College provides the education and skills needed to become a successful operator or technician. Because employers need experienced technicians, the program provides the theoretical concepts as well as hands-on practical experience. This experience is gained by completing the Associate in Applied Science Degree in Water Resources Technologies with a track either in Water Treatment or Wastewater Treatment or one of our Certificates of Completion in Water Treatment or Wastewater Treatment. Additionally, operators in the State of Arizona are required to obtain state certification in order to work in this field. GateWay's classes prepare you to take the certification exam.

EMPLOYMENT OUTLOOK Due to population growth, industry demand and a critical need for water — particularly in the Southwestern United States — Water/Wastewater Treatment Technician positions are expected to increase 10% or more by 2018. Water/Wastewater Technicians earn an average hourly rate of $20.80 for an average annual salary of $43,268.

RESPIRATORY THERAPIST

ASSOCIATE IN APPLIED SCIENCE DEGREE IN RESPIRATORY CARE

CAREER DESCRIPTION

HOW TO GET STARTED

ACCREDITATION

As a Respiratory Therapist, you will assess, evaluate, treat and care for patients with lung and breathing problems, under the direction of a physician. Respiratory Therapists evaluate and treat all types of patients, ranging from premature infants to the elderly. They provide temporary relief to patients with chronic asthma or emphysema and give emergency care to victims of a heart attack, stroke, drowning or shock. They assume primary responsibility for all respiratory care therapeutic treatments and diagnostic procedures to include: the use of oxygen mixtures, chest physiotherapy, delivery of aerosol medications and pulmonary function testing. Therapists also provide complex therapy requiring considerable independent judgment and the ability to work under pressure, such as caring for patients on life support in the intensive-care units of hospitals. The majority of Respiratory Therapists work in hospitals but employment can also be found in physician offices, home health agencies, clinics, home care delivery services and nursing homes.

Formal training is required to enter this profession and GateWay Community College offers an Associate in Applied Science Degree in Respiratory Care. Upon graduation you will be eligible to take the National Board for Respiratory Care examinations. Continued education and experience will allow advancement within the field. Therapists are becoming involved in areas such as pulmonary rehabilitation, smoking-cessation counseling, disease prevention, case management and Polysomnography (see page 52) — the diagnosis of breathing disorders during sleep, such as apnea. Respiratory Therapists also increasingly treat critical-care patients, either as part of surface and air transport teams or as part of rapid-response teams in hospitals.

GateWay’s Respiratory Care program is accredited by the Committee on Accreditation for Respiratory Care.
