Real Estate, ServSafe Spanish, Orthopedic classes coming to RCC

ASHEBORO (Feb. 19, 2019)

Randolph Community College’s Workforce Development and Continuing Education Division is offering several real estate courses in March, along with an orthopedic casting and bracing class and a ServSafe course in Spanish.

Realtors can take the annual update course in the morning and the elective course in the afternoon of the same day. The “General Real Estate Update” course (#68447) fulfills the annual continuing education credit for Real Estate Brokers as mandated by the North Carolina Real Estate Commission (NCREC). The “Broker-in-Charge Real Estate Update” class (#68449) fulfills the annual continuing education credit for Brokers-in-Charge as mandated by the NCREC. The Commission changes the subject matter of these classes each year. Both courses will be offered from 8 a.m.-noon Wednesday, March 27, in rooms 103 and 223, respectively, of the Continuing Education and Industrial Center (CEIC) on the Asheboro Campus.

The elective course, “Real Estate Agency, Art or Agony,” is designed to cause brokers to “stop ... and ... think” about their actions or inactions when working with buyers and sellers or landlords and tenants, especially when acting as a dual agent. The class (#68448) is being offered from 1-5 p.m. Wednesday, March 27, in room 103 of the CEIC.

The cost for each class is $45. All Real Estate courses require students to bring a photo ID and pocket card. Students will receive a 100 percent refund if a class fails to “make” due to insufficient enrollment. A student who officially withdraws from a class prior to the first class meeting will be eligible for a 100 percent refund. No refunds are given for students that are listed as “no show.”

RCC’s “ServSafe, Spanish” class (#69130) meets from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Saturday, March 23, in room 223 of the CEIC.

The ServSafe program was developed by the National Restaurant Association with the help of food service industry experts. Years of experience and inside knowledge of the food service industry are at the core of the course, exams, and materials.

This program blends the latest Food and Drug Administration Food Code, food safety research, and years of food sanitation training experience. Students will learn to implement essential food safety practices and create a culture of food safety. Upon completion of the course and exam, participants will receive nationally-recognized certification by the National Restaurant Association, required by the manager on duty to earn a 100 percent Health Inspection Grade.

Registration is $70, plus a required textbook, “ServSafe Manager Book, 7th Edition, Spanish, with Exam Answer sheet” (approx. $90), which can be purchased from the RCC Campus Store.

Many medical specialties can benefit from “Orthopedic Casting and Bracing,” including medical assistants, physical therapy assistants, occupational therapy assistants, radiographers, and nurses. The class (#69115) is from 8 a.m.-noon and 12:30-4:30 p.m. Saturday, March 23, and from 8 a.m.-noon Saturday, March 30, in room 107 of the Health and Science Center on the Asheboro Campus.

The course is a basic class for new and intermediate casters. Students will learn about the functions and materials of types of casts and splints, as well as methods for applying and removing them. Additional topics include basic anatomy, wound care, patient communication, and assistive devices such as cast shoes, crutches, and slings. Students will be taught patient care techniques that will improve patient casting outcomes and result in a more efficient cast application with less patient return visits for cast problems.

Experience in health care is a prerequisite for the course, which is being taught by an ASOP Certified instructor and is equivalent to 1.2 CEUs. Certificates will be provided at the end of the class. Each attendee will be responsible for submitting CEUs to their prospective professional association for approval. Students can elect to sit for the Registered Orthopedic Technologist exam after completing the class.

The cost is $200.55 ($70 tuition, $.55 insurance, $130 supply fee).
