Regional College Expands Local Curriculum

July 30th, 2019

Northern Pennsylvania Regional College NPRC has been certified by the state to provide educational programs in emergency medical services (EMS), water treatment, and wastewater management beginning this fall. Pa. Dept. of Health has certified the college’s 80-hour emergency medical responder course. Meanwhile, Pa. Dept. of Environmental Protection has authorized NPRC to provide certificate programs and continuing education in water treatment and wastewater treatment. Still pending with the Pa. Dept. of Education is an application for certification that would allow NPRC to provide nurse aide training and competency evaluations. This addresses an urgent need for nurse aides in long-term care and other facilities.

At the same time, NPRC is expanding its “interactive television delivery model” to provide the training to various sites in the college’s service area. The model allows communities with smaller numbers of interested students to collectively receive the training. Northern Pennsylvania Regional College offers affordable and accessible post-secondary education options to Potter, Cameron, McKean, Elk, Crawford, Erie, Forest, Venango and Warren counties. In addition to associate degrees in business administration, criminal justice, early childhood education/early intervention, and interdisciplinary studies, NPRC offers workforce and professional training in industrial technology and commercial driver licensing. Customized training for businesses is also available. More information on NPRC is available online at regionalcollegepa.org.
