Students at Tallahassee Community College (TCC) consistently pass their national and state certification exams in high numbers, and the latest scores received this October continue that tradition of success.
Over the last month, TCC students from a variety of areas in healthcare and law enforcement learned that they and their classmates passed the certification exams needed to enter their new careers.
Among those students was the inaugural class of TCC’s medical billing and coding specialists. Medical billing and coding specialists are responsible for the coding of patients’ medical records, billing insurance providers for services rendered and optimizing reimbursement for a full range of medical services. The class attained an 80 percent pass-rate on the national certifying exam.
Other healthcare education graduates got good news as well, with TCC’s most recent dental assisting and paramedic classes achieving 100 percent pass-rates on the Dental Assisting National Board Examination and State of Florida Paramedic Certification Exam, respectively.
Wrapping up the month of achievements, TCC’s latest evening law enforcement class at the Pat Thomas Law Enforcement Academy received a 100 percent pass-rate on the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s State Officer Certification Exam.
“We’re incredibly proud of our students’ achievements on these exams,” said Dr. Jim Murdaugh, resident of TCC. “And we’re proud that TCC is consistently able to provide the community with highly-qualified, well-trained professionals. We place significant emphasis on student success here at TCC, and these pass rates are an excellent example of how that investment benefits students and benefits the community.”
