Congratulations to the ACWHCC Adult Education Medical Assisting program on being granted ten more years of accreditation. For over a year teacher Margaret Dalton and her aide Heather Harrison collected, organized, and facilitated the extensive assembly of required documentation for their program audit. The audit occurred in October, 2013 when the audit team concluded their on-site review and reported no findings. The auditors shared that it is very uncommon for them to have no findings.

Adult Education students in the Medical Assisting program recently gave a presentation at the Superintendent's annual Senior Citizens Luncheon. Students conveyed their excitement about what they are learning and were able to practice some of their newly acquired skills. They offered free blood pressure checks and heartbeat checks to the seniors before and after lunch as they study the difference ingesting food makes in blood pressure rates.

The Ashland County-West Holmes Career Center Medical Assisting class held a mock disaster drill to prepare students for response to natural and man-made disasters. Mr. Mark Rafeld, Director of Emergency Management Services, was a guest participant in stepping students through the procedures and protocols to follow during a disaster. It was an exciting and beneficial learning exercise in emergency preparedness for our students in the healthcare field.
Ashland County-West Holmes Career Center’s Adult Education department recently gave a demonstration for local Superintendents on the newly purchased virtual reality arc welding system. The new equipment will be used in the Adult Education Maintenance Training and Welding Technology programs. With a virtual system such as this, the student can be immersed in his/her environment, with a feeling of being inside and a part of that world and totally focused on the welding experience. The Lincoln Electric VRTex 360 is designed to allow Adult Education students to practice their welding technique and promotes the transfer of skills from the simulator to the welding booth without the waste incurred with normal welding practice. Students using the simulator will wear a specially designed welding helmet with 3D stereo eyepieces and sound, while drawing the sight, sound, and feel needed to make a good weld.
