Welcome to Trident Technical College’s Respiratory Care Program Information session. This session will provide program requirements and other information to help you decide if the Respiratory Care profession is right for you.
Respiratory Care is a wise choice in the patient care field. One of the most important benefits of being a Respiratory Therapist (RT) is the personal satisfaction that comes from helping others. RTs work directly with patients to enhance their cardiopulmonary health and wellness. They play an important role in improving the quality of life of individuals with cardiopulmonary disease. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects employment of respiratory therapists is projected to grow 23 percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations.
Successful completion of the online information session is required as a part of the RC Program admissions process. Students must successfully complete the quiz at the end of the session. A score of 100% is required for successful completion. If a score of 100% is not achieved, the student has the opportunity to retake the quiz.
Upon successful completion of the quiz provide your student email address in the indicated box on the completion page. The Health Sciences Admissions Coordinator will be notified that you have completed the session. This will be documented in your file.
NOTE: Please DO NOT complete the quiz until after you have submitted your Health Science application to the Admissions Office. You may apply to the program any time AFTER you have received acceptance to the college.
