Disclaimer:

Attendance is governed by 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 147 and the policies of Delaware Tech as outlined in the college catalog.  Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations require that all students must receive a minimum number of hours of instruction, in both classroom and lab, and that all missed time must be made up before the student is allowed to take the FAA written, oral, and practical exams.  Any conflict between school policies and FAA regulations in this matter, the FAA regulations shall take precedence.  Missed classes and/or make-up work should be coordinated with the instructor either before or immediately after any absence. 

Core Course Performance Objectives (CCPOs):
