Exceptional Medical Assistant Training for an Exceptional Career

You want more than just a job. You want something that makes you feel alive—something that gives you a sense of purpose. You want relevant job experience that you can carry with you as you advance. You want to do work that helps others and benefits your community.

You want a career.

If you’re wondering how to become a medical assistant, we’ll give you what you need to have a real, meaningful impact.

With an emphasis on concrete skills training, CareerStep’s approach is different from all the other online medical assistant certification programs you’ve seen. Because we empower entry-level professionals to take control and pave their own way on their career journey.

How? By prioritizing each Learner—putting their needs first—and enabling future medical assistants to train at home in whatever way works best for them.

Our online medical assistant program is developed by industry professionals with decades of on-the-job experience. A thorough, highly focused outline—packed with relevant content that’s aligned specifically with the current job market—ensures that when you start hunting for jobs, you’ll have the knowledge and skills that employers are looking for.

It thoroughly trains you on routine patient care, clinical office procedures, and the soft skills you’ll need to stand out amongst your peers: communication skills, computer literacy skills, telephone skills, and so much more.

And because we know different people internalize information in different ways, the Medical Assistant program includes lots of rich, visual course materials. You’ll learn intuitively through videos and images, training games, and highly interactive instructional simulations. The content is designed to help you absorb the information quickly in a way that improves overall knowledge retention.

It’s entirely self-paced and 100% online, too. So you can train on your own terms.

But it’s way more than just training.

Thanks to our vast network of partners, you’ll get 100 hours worth of experience working in a clinical setting—fueling you with the knowledge to earn the Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA), Certified Medical Administrative Assistant (CMAA), Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT), and Certified EKG Technician (CET) credentials. This is where you’ll get definitive, real-world exposure and develop relationships with established professionals in the industry. Remember that clinical opportunities vary, and we work with a vast network of healthcare organizations to find a good fit. But we can’t guarantee placement—or employment—in your area.

Sign up for our online medical assistant program today, and you could find the peace of mind, salary, and job satisfaction you’ve been looking for.

They are amazing. They helped me achieve my dream of becoming a medical assistant. With flexible hours, teachers always there to help, and most of all—opportunity. I couldn’t have picked better (training) to achieve my goals.

CareerStep has made learning the most convenient it has ever been. Having to juggle being a military wife, I can sit down at any time and do my schooling at my own pace. Having the support to keep going due to positive outcomes has pushed me a lot. The resources provided are amazing and so helpful!

An amazing school. So helpful, flexible, and understanding. They are an amazing staff and school.
