The A.A.S. Chemical Laboratory Technology degree program is a non-transfer degree, designed for graduates seeking direct employment. Students entering this program at RVCC must have already completed the Technical Training Project (TTP) at Essex County College. TTP consists of 20 weeks of intensive academic course of study and on-job-training. Classroom instruction focuses on chemistry with the addition of mathematics, biology, microbiology, anatomy, physiology, and introductory biochemistry. Additionally, the program emphasizes proper documentation, analysis of experimental data, and laboratory safety. TTP uses the laboratories of the sponsoring companies for the on-job- training phase of the program. Students work under the supervision of highly skilled professional and are exposed to state-of-the art equipment. The A.A.S. Chemical Laboratory Technology degree at RVCC will allow TTP graduates to continue their education. Completion of the program allows graduates to compete for jobs in laboratories involved in research, product development, manufacturing and quality control.

Graduates will be able to:

  • communicate in a professional manner
  • use chemicals, materials and lab equipment according to industry standards of competency and safety
  • perform various techniques in wet and dry analysis
  • meet proficiency standards of record keeping and documentation
  • explore career opportunities while gaining experience in specific technical areas
