FOURTEEN students from Mandurah DNA Kingston Training celebrated their graduation at the Greyhound Races in Mandurah.

Graduating students completed the Certificate IV in Dental Assisting over a period of 10 months.

Students had to complete training two days a week with the addition of 250 hours of practical work at various local clinics in 12 months.

One of the senior lecturers at DNA Kingston Training Christine Parker said the training team celebrated another successful year with students.

“Some of our students have had fantastic success with employment as nine have been employed after completing the course,” she said.

“We’ve had these students enter a specialist field in orthodontics which is excellent.”

Ms Parker said three graduate students have gone on to complete further studies.

“One of our graduating students will now study hygiene therapy at Curtin University and two other graduates will be applying for oral health at Curtin,” she said.

The graduation was attended by family and friends of the graduates.

Awards in Excellence in Theory and Excellence in Practical were also presented to chosen students on the night.
