Free safety courses offered through December by KC Risk Management Institute

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

Classes will be held in Kilgore in the Student Support Building (Room 208) on the Kilgore campus unless noted otherwise.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, classes are limited and social distancing and state health mandates will be followed.

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

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

Since 1999, Texas Mutual has awarded $6.6 million in safety education grants – including $100,000 for 12 straight years to sustain the KC Risk Management Institute – marking $1.2 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.
