February 16, 2011 - Marietta Memorial Hospital Employee Receives Prestigious Certification
Rick Headley, certified driver rehabilitation specialist at Marietta Memorial Hospital, recently received certification to teach the National Safety Council’s (DDC-4) class. This driver improvement course is widely used by businesses and industries, courts and government agencies, municipalities, driving schools and the military. The course can be adapted for different age groups and classes will be offered targeting youth as well as mature drivers. The course will be offered both on-site at MMH as well as off-site at a business’ request.
By receiving this certification, Headley becomes the only trainer certified in Washington County to teach this program, as well as running the only hospital based driver program in Ohio to offer this driving course. “This course can help individuals remember how to drive while covering current issues like texting, road-rage and how sleep deprivation affects driving,” says Headley. “This driving course can benefit experienced licensed drivers, companies who want a driver improvement course for their employees as well as traffic violators who are required to take a driver improvement course by a court,” says Headley.
