Founded in 1992 as a medical transcription school, Career Step is based in Provo, Utah and has expanded its course catalog to include education for a variety of healthcare, administrative services, and technology careers. The online training school is registered as an educational institution in the State of Utah under the Utah Post-secondary Proprietary School Act (Title 13, Chapter 34, Utah Code).

Why Career Step is a Preferred Career Training School

Since its founding, Career Step has provided distance education services to tens of thousands of students from all 50 states. In June 1999, Career Step made its programs available to students through an online learning platform, incorporating the latest distance education programming techniques, technology, and instructional design methodologies. This transition to entirely-online career training improved the learning experience of Career Step's students by ensuring they learn from the most up-to-date curriculum, providing instant access to support resources, and creating a more hands-on and interactive learning experience.

As a career training school, Career Step is committed to providing students career-focused education. Career Step programs stand out because:
