Tucson, Arizona (KGUN9) —These could be the first steps towards a career in the medical field.
“This is the best entry point. You will learn about anatomy and how to talk to your patients and such,” said Senior Aracely Arredondo. Many of these students have already graduated, but have returned to a week-long summer session to qualify for the training and qualifications they missed last year.
“Yesterday we got CPR and first aid certification, so everyone in the class got CPR certification,” said Luis Quen, who started college in August. At the beginning of the TUSD academic year, dozens of these career and technical education programs return to hands-on learning.
“We haven’t seen them for 15 or 16 months, so getting them back to the level they need to get the qualifications they’re looking for will be a real challenge,” he said. Academic trainer Karl Oxnum said.
For Kendraskif, a medical profession instructor, this is a welcome change. “For me, hands-on learning is the only way to learn, and I missed them, so I’m happy that they’re back,” she said. And the students we talked to said they were happy to be able to put into practice what they were trying to do.
“It basically just helps people,” Arredondo said.
“Some people there can’t help themselves, and I want to be able to help many.”
