The New York Department of Motor Vehicles has recently announced they have partnered with SUNY Empire State to help provide college credit to eligible employees of the DMV.
The credits the employees use may go to general learning toward any undergraduate program at the college.
“We are always looking for new and innovative ways to help our employees gain new skills through training and to advance their careers, so we are very excited to roll out this new partnership with SUNY Empire,” said DMV Executive Deputy Commissioner Christian Jackstadt.
For DMV employees to be eligible, they must be either new or currently working at all three components of the DMV’s New Employee Training Program (NETP), License, Registration and Enforcement with addition to a customer service component.
Current employees at the DMV must have completed the training since 2013. For those that have, they can receive six college credits from SUNY Empire College. This represents a savings of $2,015.20 dollars in tuition fees.
