100 Percent of LCCC Students in Two Fields Pass Exams

The 2013 graduates of Lorain County Community College’s Radiologic Technology program continued a positive trend this year when 100 percent of the graduates passed the national exam.

All thirteen of the 2013 graduates of the LCCC program passed The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) exam on their first attempt. This is the third consecutive year that the full class passed the exam. Over the past 10 years, seven LCCC Radiologic Technology classes have achieved the 100 percent pass rate.

“I’m proud of the students and the hard work they do throughout the program, and in preparation for the test,” said program director Jeff Walmsley.

The program includes integrated education, in which clinical programs and traditional classroom work occur simultaneously. Additionally, the small class size allows students to connect one-on-one with instructors and helps ensure success, Walmsley said.

Walmsley is proud of the tradition of students passing the national exam. He hopes to reach 10 consecutive years of 100 percent pass rates.

“Even more than their test success, I know every one of them will be technically skilled, but even more important, caring, compassionate technologists,” Walmsley said.

Another group of students that achieved a 100 percent success rate are the 14 students in the 2013 “Get Into Energy” program who passed their Energy Industry Fundamentals Certification, as well as their National Career Readiness Certification.

“Get Into Energy” is a pilot program that gives the students the fundamentals to work in the energy industry. By completing the program they also earned an LCCC certificate of completion.

The program was developed by the Center for Energy in Workforce Development and a consortium of energy providers, such as Dominion, First Energy, Columbia Gas, Nisource, Duke, and more. These partners developed a training program that prepares individuals for the energy industry to feed the talent pipeline to help meet the workforce shortages that are projected in this industry due to an aging workforce over the next few years.
