Kamieo Linden of Elyria and Mason Huffman of Amherst take part in a CPR and defibrillator training at the Lorain County JVS. Industrial electricity juniors recently received certification through a lab taught by JVS Adult Career Center instructor Jimmie Ward, who is also a paramedic and EMT in Oberlin. “It is extremely important to me that every one of my students knows this skill and gets certified their junior year,” said IE instructor Jan Ramirez. “You never want to have to use it, but it is essential in the building trades industry to have this knowledge.” Derick Oswald, a part-time Adult Career Center instructor, paramedic for Oberlin and Wellington, and firefighter for Wellington, was also on hand to assist with the training.
