PUTTING THEM TO THE TEST – Nine seniors enrolled in the protective services program at the Western Montgomery Career and Technology Center in Limerick were put through their paces in performance exams Tuesday (April 26, 2017) by volunteers from the Limerick and Linfield fire companies. The students were tested on their fire, police, and emergency medical response knowledge. Successfully completing the tests allows them to attain certifications from the center through NOCTI, the nation’s largest provider of industry-based credentials and partner industry certifications for career and technical education programs. Certificates help the students prove to future employers they are qualified for first-responder jobs they seek. The tests included working with hand-held hoses (at top), conducting a traffic stop and issuing citations (below), and cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (bottom), as well as three other skills. The center receives students from the Pottsgrove, Spring-Ford Area, and Upper Perkiomen school districts.
