Utilizing a generous gift from the community, Columbus Regional Health Foundation (CRHF) recently supported TrainerConnect, a local, professional talent development company with a $40,000 grant.  The funds will allow TrainerConnect to provide 5 local, low income community members with the opportunity to complete the Advanced Healthcare Training program free of cost, and a chance to better their work and life situations.  The grant also enables TrainerConnect to qualify for additional state workforce development funds, ensuring funding for future students.

The Advanced Healthcare Training program is a 20 week course where students will learn skills needed to become a well-rounded member of the professional medical workforce.  Through classroom and clinical rotations, students can receive professional licensing and certification as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA) or Certified Medical Administrative Assistant (CMAA).  This program allows students with only a high school diploma or GED to quickly gain necessary skills and training to become a successful member of the medical team, with no financial debt.

TrainerConnect meets a critical unmet healthcare workforce need by producing highly qualified, work-ready and professional Medical Assistants and Certified Nursing Assistants.  The healthcare team staff at TrainerConnect is dedicated to closing professional and technical skill gaps in the healthcare workforce. And Columbus Regional Health System reaps the benefit with well-trained students who are fully prepared to take on a number of different positions, thereby allowing the system to more fully serve its patients.

CRHF is grateful to our donors whose generosity, through the work and dedication of TrainerConnect, contributes to the success of these 5 students and to students well into the future.
