  • Nurse Aide

    The Skills Certificate in Nurse Aide is designed to provide a student with the training to become a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) or Certified Medication Technician (CMT). The courses are offered on-ground and online, and clinicals are on-site at an approved longterm care facility. A CNA works closely with nurses and the health care team. The nurse assistant must be skilled in the actual procedures being performed; have a strong grasp of emergency procedures; be able to stay calm in stressful situations, and be able to observe a patient’s condition and report that information back to the nurse.

    Tasks may include turning and repositioning bedridden patients; helping patients exercise and move in and out of bed; preparing patients for surgery, treatment or examination; applying dressing, and transporting patients to treatment units.

    The CMT training prepares a student to work in long-term care facilities. The program teaches skills in administration of non-parenteral (oral or by inhalation) medications and in assisting RNs or LPNs with medication therapy.

  • Welding Technology

    The Skills Certificate in Structural Welding is designed for the student who wants to get into the workforce as soon as possible.

    The welding courses follow American Welding Society (AWS) guidelines, and the successful student will be eligible for up to six AWS welder qualifications, according to the AWS D 1.1 Structural Welding Code.

    In the classroom, students will learn the technological information associated with the welding processes and how to apply that information to practical use on the job. This program meets the needs of both beginning and experienced welders who are seeking certification. Welders need good eyesight, hand-eye coordination and manual dexterity. Students should be able to concentrate on detailed work for long periods and must be able to lift up to 45 pounds, bend, stoop, crawl, kneel, climb ladders, and work in awkward and cramped positions.

    All students should be aware welding fumes produce a chemical known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects (or other reproductive harm). Students should review the Material Data Safety Sheets (MSDS) available in the welding department located in the Fielding Technical Center, Room 270, to be aware of the hazards of welding fumes.
