Article 18: Maintaining Minimum Qualifications

Collective Bargaining Agreement for Full-Time Faculty


The parties recognize there are certain licenses and/or certifications required for faculty to be qualified to perform the duties of their job description. The employee shall be responsible for the maintenance of these qualifications. If the employee is required to return to college, trade school, or the private sector in order to maintain one or more of these qualifications, the College shall continue to assist the employee with the requirement on a case by case basis.


An employee who fails to maintain a required license and/or certification for the employee’s position may be removed from the employee’s position and may be terminated. 


It is recognized that a faculty member may use College facilities as part of a professional development plan that is approved by the Dean.


Full-time faculty members must become online certified in order to teach CNM classes online. Full-time faculty who take CNM approved classes to attain certification to teach online, are eligible to apply for a tuition waiver, to cover the cost of tuition of the applicable CNM approved class or classes, in accordance with Article 31 (Educational Benefits) of this agreement.
