Hudson Valley Educational Consortium What Is It?
Four Hudson Valley Community Colleges, Ulster, Sullivan, Rockland and Orange, have joined together in an exciting new regional collaboration. The purpose of the Hudson Valley Educational Consortium is to provide a wider scope of academic and continuing education programs to students. Another primary focus of the Consortium is to work with the community in the greater Hudson Valley to identify, develop and implement needed workforce training programs.
How Does It Work?
The Consortium is in the unique position of being able to meet evolving student and employer training demands by offering degree and continuing education opportunities primarily through long distance training technologies including interactive video television and online training. For example, a student attending Ulster Community College can enroll in courses originating from Sullivan Community College. Students participate in courses via interactive video training laboratory available on each campus and/or through online courses. This technology enables students to participate in classes and interact with the instructor, as well as the students at other colleges, through the interactive video educational environment. Interactive video television technology allows students to transcend the geographic barriers of degree programs offered at community colleges at geographically remote locations. In addition, Consortium programs give students the flexibility of taking their liberal arts courses from their “home” college.
Degree and Continuing Education Training Programs
Programs currently available through the Consortium include several emergency/homeland security related academic offerings: Associate of Applied Science degrees in Emergency Management, Cyber Security, Fire Protection Technology and Paramedic. Associate of Applied Science degree programs in the Innovative Technologies field are also available, including Green Building Maintenance and Management. The Consortium also offers an array of continuing education programs. Many programs are listed in the college schedules and educators are continually developing new programs based on emerging technologies and other areas of need. Orange, Rockland, Sullivan and Ulster Community Colleges are proactively working together to ensure that the regional needs of both students and employers are met through the Consortium.
Registration and Information
The Hudson Valley Educational Consortium’s programs are supported by the State of New York’s Education Department and Board of Regents. We look forward to hearing from both students and employers about how we may serve or enhance your educational needs. Registration for Consortium courses is easy! Students register for Consortium courses through the college they normally attend. If you have any questions, please contact your College Registrar or for CE class information contact your Continuing Education department. For specific questions on the Consortium, please contact Consortium staff at 845-341-4959. Thank you!

Pre-Licensing / Driving Programs RCC DDP Drinking Driver Program *NYS Drinking Driver Program at Rockland Community College*
Rockland Community College has been providing the NYS Drinking Driver Program since 1977. You have probably heard that driving while impaired or intoxicated is a serious traffic safety problem in the United States. In NYS, more than 20 percent of all highway deaths involve the use of alcohol/other drugs. But, the facts and statistics do not tell the whole story... behind the numbers are thousands of lives cut short, permanent or disabling injuries, and families devastated because someone drove while under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. Not every impaired or intoxicated driver causes a traffic crash, but each one is dangerous, risking his or her life and the lives of those sharing the road. Call DDP at 845-574-4421 or email rccddp@ sunyrockland.edu for the latest class schedule information and be sure to contact your local DMV Office to find out if you are eligible for RCC DDP.

Certification tells people you have the comprehensive skills necessary to provide a wide range of tasks efficiently and effectively, are skill oriented, computer literate and possess the technical skills and knowledge that are in demand in today’s business environment.
