The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to support the development of two fast-track programs for Gaston College to better meet industry needs in the Lincoln County area: a Certified Nursing Assistant/Phlebotomist program and an Emergency Medical Technician program. Training for both 16-week training programs will seek to lessen the gap between supply and demand for a qualified healthcare labor pool by retraining displaced workers for these high-demand positions. The program anticipates having 40 certified CNA’s and 40 EMT’s trained in the Spring of 2010 with 90% achieving employment within 90 days of course completion.
