Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education and professional training, is proud to announce the launch of its new Medical Assistant program. This program was developed to help students gain all the knowledge and skills needed to start working in this in-demand healthcare field. The Medical Assistant program is entirely online training and can be completed in as little as four months of full-time study.
“Career Step’s focus is and always has been on helping students prepare for careers in growing and in-demand sectors of healthcare,” said Steve Tober, Career Step President and CEO. “We are excited to be launching our new Medical Assistant program because it offers an excellent way for our students to begin working in a career field expected to add 138,000 new jobs in the next few years.”
The Medical Assistant program is designed as an affordable and flexible way for students to train for an exciting career focusing on clinical care. The online course delivers 510 hours of curriculum at the pace and on the schedule that works for students and their busy schedules. To help ensure students are prepared for clinical care, Career Step has included interactive simulations to give students hands-on experience in key procedures such as obtaining vital signs and administering injections. Students will graduate prepared to sit for the Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA) exam offered through the National Healthcareer Association (NHA).
“A medical assistant program is one of the most frequently requested courses by our students, and we are excited to provide a program in this rapidly growing career field,” said Ben Hartman, Career Step Vice President of Enrollments. “Our goal is always to provide the very best education at affordable tuition prices, and it is rewarding to see people empowered to change their lives through the flexible career training that we offer.”
