Hands-on training

Overrated and expensive. I did learn a lot about the healthcare field. The schedule was hard because I was working midnights at the time. I wish I would have went to lpn school instead and I would be even further along now in my career.

The teachers were very knowledgeable about the information and hands-on experience. Easily accessible by bus route and are trained if you do not have your own transportation.

“Certificates for medical assistant are different from state to state. When I moved to Pennsylvania from Alabama I wasn’t able to use my certification because it was from another state and would have had to attend another year long program to be certified in Pennsylvania.”
