The Daniel Boone Health Science Program successfully completed two separate Industry Certification courses this past fall.
Eight seniors were eligible to sit for the national registry test for personal trainer after completing required classroom work and 16 hours at three clinical sites. Additionally, these students were required to develop and implement a combined circuit training and health related educational piece clocking over 6 hours. Seven students achieved a Personal Trainer Certification and now plan to pursue healthcare as a profession.
The EMS course had 12 students each receiving their First Responder Certification through the American Safety and Health Institute. Students achieved eligibility by completing required coursework, passing skill sets by the National Registry for Emergency Medical Technicians and exposure and training of over 60 clinical hours with state instructors and paramedics provided by the Washington County/Johnson City EMS Service.
In addition to their respective certifications, students also achieved CPR and First Aid Certificates through the American Heart Association.
