A recognition ceremony for graduates of Tunxis Community College’s registered medical assistant (RMA) program was held July 12 on the College’s campus in Farmington.

The graduates received certificates and were pinned by Tunxis instructors, which marks the end of their 10-month education in the non-credit program and their eligibility to take the American Medical Technologists RMA national certification exam.

Renee Dionne of Bristol, received distinction as the graduate with the highest grade point average during the ceremony.

The registered medical assistant program is one of several at the College that helps meet demand in Connecticut for health care workers. Registered medical assistants rank among the top 20 occupations expected to have the highest growth rate in Connecticut through 2018, with very good employment opportunities, according to the Connecticut Department of Labor.

Information sessions for the registered medical assistant program will be held at Tunxis July 18 and Sept. 12, at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. For more information, call 860.773.1453.

In addition to the RMA certificate, Tunxis offers health care programs that center on certified nurse aide (CNA), dental hygiene, dental assisting, phlebotomy, patient care technician, central sterile processing technician, pharmacy technician, EMT, EKG technician, and medical billing & coding.
