Free safety courses offered by KC Risk Management Institute

The Risk Management Institute at Kilgore College will provide several free classes this spring that will help train and educate local employers, employees and the general public about proper workplace safety practices.

All courses are free but advance registration is required.  Classes are held in Kilgore at the Bert E. Woodruff Adult Education Center, 220 N. Henderson Blvd., in Kilgore.

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and certificates will be awarded upon successful completion of each course.

The courses are funded by a grant to the KC Workforce Development Continuing Education Department from Texas Mutual Insurance Company.

This is the 11th-straight year that Texas Mutual, the state’s leading provider of workers’ compensation insurance, has given a $100,000 grant to KC to sustain the Risk Management Institute, marking $1.1 million in donations to KC.

Registration forms and course descriptions are available on the RMI website: www.kilgore.edu/rmi.

For more information, or to register or to inquire about other courses, call Jennie Alcantar at 903-983-8170 or email jalcantar@kilgore.edu.
