Dyersburg State Community College recently recognized 76 students — including four from Obion County — for completing the emergency medical technician (EMT) training program.
Among the local students who completed the program were Bradley Gooch of Obion, Courtney Petty of Hornbeak and Stephanie Scott and Justin Sutton, both of Union City.
They were honored during ceremonies held at the DSCC Jimmy Naifeh Center at Tipton County and at First United Methodist Church in Dyersburg.
The EMT program was offered at DSCC facilities in Covington, Dyersburg and Trenton.
Each student was required to complete 15 semester hours of classroom work, which was supplemented with clinical experiences in area hospitals and emergency medical services.
Upon the completion of the course, students were required to successfully complete the EMT competency written and practical examination. After this, each was required to pass the State of Tennessee Basic EMT Licensure Examination.
The next session of EMT training will begin in August during the fall semester at Dyersburg, Covington and Trenton. For more information, contact program director Tom Coley at (731) 286-3381 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
