I got Certified as a Medical Assistant and I loved every day I went to school I graduated with honors passed my test and I have a wonderful job.

Nelida B., Medical Assistant-Administrative

I learned Medical Assisting and they also train you for your CPR and First Aid Certification through American Red Cross which was professional and a plus. I took advantage of the career services Teresa whom helped me perfect my resume and apply for job opportunities was great. Shortly after I landed an entry level job as a Medical Assistant a week before my graduation. Even half a year later I still was able to contact Victor who helped me find my loan servicer and he was very helpful and nice . It’s been a great progression from then till now and it’s only getting better. I definitely choose the right path. I love helping others and I’m making great earnings. It’s all about how you apply yourself and your willingness to strive for your purpose.
