The first batch of Operation Theatre (OT) and Blood Bank Technicians who underwent skill development training at the Jatni Campus of the Centurion University, graduated in this month after successfully completing the training programme.
Thirty students, who hailed from the Maoist-infested Dantewada and Bastar districts of Chhattisgarh, were imparted one-year training in Operation Theatre (OT) and Blood Bank Technician courses.
State-run National Mineral Development Corporation (NMDC) sponsored the traing of these students as part of the company’s corporate social responsibility. The objective of this skill development training was to provide skilled health workers in Dantewada and Bastar districts which are deprived of quality health services.
NMDC Senior Manager Sobhan Garnaik lauded the efforts of the Centurion University for taking up this challenging task of mobilising students from Chhattisgarh, imparting best in class training in healthcare along with life skills, softskills, employability etc.
Centurion University Director Prof. Jagannath Padhi spoke about the various courses and facilities available in Centurion University and about the future of paramedical courses.
Gram Tarang General Manager (Projects) Sanjeev Mishra highlighted the support of NMDC and its staff, the dedication and hard work of CUTM staff and the sincere, disciplined and dedicated efforts of the students that made this program very successful.
