Abstract

A relation of equivalence for Community College of the Air Force Associate in Applied Science degree programs and industrial technology-oriented civilian Associate in Applied Science degree programs was investigated. The purpose was to facilitate acceptance of Community College of the Air Force Associate in Applied Science degree programs for transfer to baccalaureate degree-granting institutions that prepare industrial technologists. Relation of equivalence was pursued through the use of specialized computer files maintained by the National Crosswalk Service Center that articulate the relationship between Air Force Specialty codes developed by the U. S. Air Force, occupational codes developed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and codes developed by the National Center for Education Statistics that represent post- secondary instructional programs. The findings indicate a relation of equivalence exists between selected Community College of the Air Force Associate in Applied Science degree programs and selected civilian industrial technology-oriented Associate in Applied Science degree programs. Specialized computer files maintained by the National Crosswalk Service Center can be used to facilitate acceptance of Community College of the Air Force Associate in Applied Science degree programs for transfer to baccalaureate degree-granting institutions that prepare industrial technologists.
