Sinclair Community College has joined a growing list of Ohio community colleges to offer an apprenticeship program for healthcare and State Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) students. A launch press conference will be held at Sinclair this coming Friday, November 15.
Last month's issue of
the Aging Advocate
featured a story about our apprenticeship launch at Lorain County Community College featuring Lieutenant Governor Jon Husted.
Sinclair is the first Ohio community college to offer competency-based apprenticeships in this field. Competency-based apprenticeships offer a more holistic approach to training, allowing students to demonstrate their aptitude outside of the more structured approach of time-based apprenticeship. These apprenticeships offer an opportunity for aging services providers to recruit and train new staff who enter or progress within the organization with on-the-job training and college credit.
The press conference will be held on Friday, November 15. Details are listed below.
