We live in a fast-paced society full of opportunities. That’s why choosing a career path is one of the most exciting, and intimidating, choices anyone will ever make.

Healthcare is one of the world’s fastest-growing industries. With opportunities for fulfilling and lucrative careers expanding each day, it’s no wonder many people choose to become a healthcare professional.

But how do people get their foot in the door? Particularly without a college degree in the field?

One way to get your foot in the door is by completing an online training program. Our integrated technology platform delivers quality, trusted learning content, continuing education, and certification management for new learners, healthcare professionals, and medical institutions.

Simply stated, our career certificate programs prepare you to enter the workforce as a highly trained and qualified medical professional — all from the comfort of home.

Why Choose a Career Training Program?

Why should you choose a career training program over a traditional college education?

First, there is the cost. College tuition has increased by 213% over the last several decades. On top of that initial cost, the average student takes on $26,900 in debt once they graduate from a 4-year public college or university. CareerStep programs vary in price, but none cost more than $4,000.

Second, there is the time spent. Most people take 6 years to earn a “4-year” college degree. CareerStep programs allow full-time learners to enter the workforce in 6 months or less.

Third, let’s talk about job prospects. Currently, 44% of college graduates are underemployed. With CareerStep, you’ll be trained for specific jobs that are in high demand throughout the country.

Our programs are totally affordable, super flexible, and surprisingly quick to complete.
