"As I was teaching at CCV I found I was getting the most from my students when we were out in the field – they really responded to that learning style – so I helped to develop classes in the environmental science program that maximize hands-on-learning."
Daniel Schmidt Environmental Science Faculty Member
Designed for students beginning at CCV and planning to transfer into other institutions' allied health programs, this certificate is excellent preparation for degree programs such as Vermont Technical College's programs in dental hygiene, respiratory therapy and nursing.
Students who complete the Allied Health Preparation certificate will be able to:
identify structures of human anatomy, beginning at the basic cellular level and concluding with body systems, and relate each system of the body to its functions;
demonstrate understanding of physical, cognitive, linguistic and psychological development of human beings from conception to death;
employ knowledge of metabolism, digestion, and nutrients to determine dietary strategies for minimizing risks of disease considering the nutritional and caloric needs of individuals throughout the life cycle; and
