The Community School at Cape Cod Regional Technical School in Harwich announced that two of their training programs, the Veterinary Assistant Approved Program and Dental Assistant Program, have been added to the Massachusetts Eligible Training Provider List.
Inclusion on the ETPL allows training organizations like the Community School increased opportunity to offer their programs to eligible students under workforce development programs. Eligible and unemployed students interested in the
Veterinary Assistant Approved and Dental Assistant programs will now have the ability to request funding from state workforce development programs to cover all program costs.
Interested students should contact the Community School’s Director, Carol Connolly, at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information regarding program applications.
The Veterinary Assistant Approved Program begins on Jan. 4, 2021 and prepares students to complete the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA) Exam to become certified as a Veterinary Assistant. Through classroom and clinical instruction, students are trained to provide assistance in pharmacology, preventative healthcare, basic triage, emergency and critical care nursing, laboratory
procedures, surgical and recovery room assistance, radiology, and more. The deadline to apply for this program is Dec. 21, 2020.
The Dental Assistant Program begins on Jan. 25, 2021 and teaches students the essential skills needed to complete the Dental Assistant National Board Exams in Infection Control & Radiation and Health and Safety. The program offers virtual learning and practical hands-on clinical labs in the Cape Cod Regional
Technical School’s dental workshop using up-to-date equipment and current techniques. The deadline to apply for this program is Jan. 11.
In recent months, the need for trained and certified vocational students has become apparent to the Community School. Many local employers have contacted the Community School directly in search of employee referrals, indicating a critical need on Cape Cod, particularly at a time of much economic uncertainty in a post-COVID-19 world. The intention of offering these programs at no charge to eligible
students is to expand the accessibility of job training and career opportunities to Cape Cod residents looking to make their next career move.
