The Verizon option to the Telecommunications Technology program has been specifically designed to meet the requirements of the Verizon Corporation, the Communication Workers of America and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. While similar to the Telecommunications Technology program in all major aspects, the Verizon option is scheduled and sequenced to be completed during a four-year period while attending class one day per week. Only Verizon employees represented by CWA or IBEW are eligible to enter the program. Laptop computers are provided to all students and they are an integral part of the program. This option is part of a statewide program, called Next Step, that is coordinated by Hudson Valley Community College under contract to Verizon.
