Three Rivers Center at Dexter offers Certified Med Tech course
Three Rivers College has announced that it will offer Certified Med Tech (CMT) and Insulin Administration courses at its Center at Dexter this summer for qualified Certified Nursing Assistants wishing to improve their qualifications.
The college's CMT course is available to Certified Nursing Assistants who have worked at least six months in a long-term care facility. The course is fully funded through the MOHealthWins grant and is free to qualifying applicants.
"It's a great opportunity for experienced CNAs to add to their skills and become qualified for better positions with increased pay scales," said Deb Avery, Instructional Supervisor for Three Rivers' MOHealthWins-funded programs. "Since the course only takes a month to complete, it's a quick and cost-effective way for local professionals to increase their skills."
Avery urged interested applicants to act quickly, as registration for the CMT course ends on June 24, and the course has a 10-student limit. Applicants must be at least 18 years old, have proof of six months of employment as a CNA in a long-term care facility, and submit a letter of recommendation from the administrator or Director of Nursing at their facility. They must also present proof of high school graduation or the equivalent, and complete a WorkKeys assessment. For more information or to apply, please contact Deb Avery at 573-840-9681.
Registration continues for Fall classes at all Three Rivers College locations. To search for classes, visit trcc.edu or call 573-840-9605.
