Free safety courses offered in July by KC Risk Management Institute

The Risk Management Institute at Kilgore College will provide several free classes in July 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.

Since 1999, Texas Mutual has awarded $6.6 million in safety education grants – including $100,000 for 11 straight years to sustain the KC Risk Management Institute – marking $1.1 million in donations to the college.

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

To register, call Jennie Alcantar at 903-983-8170 or email jalcantar@kilgore.edu.
