South Central Education Consortium offers Certified Med Tech course
The South Central Education Consortium in Willow Springs has announced that it will offer Certified Med Tech (CMT) courses this summer for qualified Certified Nursing Assistants wishing to improve their qualifications.
The Consortium'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 way for experienced CNAs to add to their skills and become qualified for better positions with increased pay scales," said Scott Williamson, Director of Three Rivers College's programs at the Consortium. "Since the course only takes a month to complete, it's a quick and cost-effective way for local professionals to increase their skills."
Williamson urged interested applicants to act quickly, as registration for the CMT course ends on July 15, 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 the Consortium at 417-469-3000.
