Medical Laboratory Technician and Paramedic program graduates from 2012 recently passed their certification exams with flying colors.

For the third year in a row, the pass rate for LCCC graduates on the Medical Laboratory Technician exam was 100 percent.

All 10 of the LCCC MLT graduates who took the exam passed on their first attempt. The LCCC perfect pass rate exceeds the national pass rate of 78 percent.  Additionally, LCCC students scored 17 percent higher than the national mean score.

"It is very gratifying to see the graduates perform so well on a national level, and it is a testament to the strong educational programs here at LCCC, as well as to the hard work the students put into their educational goals," said James Daly, program director of LCCC’s Clinical Laboratory Science Technology and Phlebotomy programs.

Kimberly Koch, 25 of Elyria, said she was happy to pass the exam but wasn’t surprised, considering the intense training she underwent in the LCCC program.

"My reaction when I found out I passed my exam was equal parts relief and excitement," she said. "Even though I was nervous to take the exam, when it was all said and done I felt like we all were taught more than enough to pass with flying colors."

{mosimage}The small class sizes at LCCC made it easier to master the subject, said Kerry Cullen, 25 of Lakewood.

"I received a top notch education at LCCC," Cullen said. "The small class size really allows each student to develop a relationship with each instructor."

The LCCC graduates who passed the MLT exam are: Gillian Camera and Katelyn Parsh of Lorain; Donna Dale and Koch of Elyria; Abraham Kisule of Sheffield Lake, Cullen of Lakewood and LCCC satellite program students at Terra State College in Fremont, Erlinda Gonzalez-Rangel, Amanda Lee, Brenda Mazur, and Megan Rutherford. (Laura Singer of Elyria graduated but did not take the exam with this group.)

All five of the 2012 Paramedic graduates passed the National Registry Exam. That 100 percent pass rate exceeded the national average of 74 percent for those who take the exam the first time.

"We are very fortunate to have a dedicated staff of instructors and support personnel who contribute to the success of our hard-working students," said Dawn Sgro, program coordinator of LCCC’s Paramedic program.

The Paramedic graduates who passed the National Registry Exam are: Steven Acord of Grafton, Kyle Urig of Eaton Township, Christopher Allman and Jessica Tomco of Lakewood and Andrei Rosian of Berea.
