Training for careers and successful lives

SDSC02589SQchool may be out for summer but not for students and recent graduates of the  Cincinnati Arts & Technology Center. “Opportunity Summer” at CATC offers a full slate of adventures and work opportunities designed to keep the young adults on track toward successful, self-sufficient  lives.

All summer, for example, recently graduated CATC seniors are training in various career paths, including as nursing assistants, through the CATC Bridging the Gap workforce development program. Preparing to qualify as nursing assistants is hard work, as CATC BTG students learned during their training this summer by CATC partner RN and Associates, under the tutelage of Vanessa Rozier, RN, BSN, CCM. Among the requirements: two-year certification with American Red Cross, first aide and adult-pediatric CPR skills, as well as passing written and oral tests. After successful completion of the program at RN and Associates, certificates in hand, they qualify for testing by the State of Ohio.
