RCCC recognizes law enforcement students who pass exams

SALISBURY ó Rowan-Cabarrus Community College proudly recognizes two entire groups of students who passed their respective recognized industry-wide exams.
Graduates of the Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) program and the Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) designation had no need for the program re-test options because the whole set of graduates were conferred on the first try.
ěThis does not happen often across the state and we are very proud of our students,î said President Carol S. Spalding, Ed.D. ěRowan-Cabarrus Community College faculty and staff work hard to instill a commitment to excellence in our students. This is how I know that commitment is truly worth it.î
RCCCís BLET program is designed to give students the essential skills required for entry-level employment as law enforcement officers with state, county, or municipal governments, or with a private enterprise. General subjects include criminal, juvenile, civil, traffic, and alcohol beverage laws; investigative, patrol, custody, and court procedures; emergency responses; and ethics and community relations.
ěIt is so rewarding to have all of these students pass on the first try,î said Spencer Rummage, Jr., Director of Law Enforcement Training. ěMany of our instructors are former and current law enforcement officers who bring the added value of their actual on-the-job experiences which enhances their ability to train our students.î
The BLET graduates have passed the comprehensive state examination and are now eligible to be sworn in as entry-level law enforcement officers in North Carolina. The graduates are:
Cabarrus County Sherriffís Office: Jessie Gatling, Robert Harkey, Bryant Redmond, Shane Whitley, Gerald Williams;
Concord Police Department: Mitchell Burris, Dale Castor, Walter Fink, Tommy Harvey, Fernando Sanchez, Shawn Visor;
Huntersville Police Department: Vance McGhee;
Matthews Police Department: Kevin Fontana;
Rowan County Sherriffís Office: Robyn Cosgriff, Joshua Krout, Randy Rigsby; and
Stallings Police Department: Zackary Morton.
Every year the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), recognizes those schools that made a tremendous effort towards teaching courses in human resource management. This year, Rowan-Cabarrus Community College was awarded a certificate of recognition from SHRM for achieving a 100 percent pass rate on the SPHR (Senior Professional in Human Resources) December 2010-January 2011 exam window.
ěRowan-Cabarrus Community Collegeís use of the SHRM Learning System materials, coupled with the interactive classroom environment, was instrumental in preparing me to successfully complete the SPHR exam,î said Susan Nunn who works for the Cabarrus County Department of Social Services.
The awardees include: Susan Nunn of China Grove, Christine Graves of Kannapolis, Joan Little of Monroe and Sabrina Knouse and June Pryor of Salisbury.
ěThese two groups of students are indicative of the breadth of programs and opportunities that Rowan-Cabarrus has available. I only hope that more residents of Rowan and Cabarrus counties will join the ranks of these graduates and better our community,î said Spalding.
Rowan-Cabarrus has both day and night classes for the BLET program available beginning in August and September. For more information on this program, please contact Spencer Rummage, Jr., Director of Law Enforcement Training, at 704-216-3738 or visit www.rccc.edu.
Rowan-Cabarrus also offers a test preparation course for Professional in Human Resources or a Senior Professional in Human Resources designation beginning in September.
For more information on this offering, contact DeAnn Basden, Director of Corporate & Professional Development, visit www. rccc.edu or call 704-216-3530.
