Healthcare IT Professional Program FAQs
How long does healthcare IT training take?
Our training is built to be flexible and adaptable. And it’s online by design so you can tackle the material on your own schedule and on your own terms. But for the sake of specificity, this course is designed to take 493 hours of study, which you can complete in as little as seven months or as long as twelve.†
Is financial assistance available?
CareerStep offers a variety of flexible payment options, installment plans, and even discounts for U.S. veterans, Active Duty service members, and their spouses. As CareerStep is not an educational institution, we cannot offer—or accept—traditional financial aid, such as student scholarships, loans, and grants through FAFSA. However, our low-cost training programs are affordably priced and our goal is to find a payment solution that meets your needs.
How much does a healthcare IT professional make?
Every business needs a qualified tech with knowledge and skill, which means there’s a lot of potential in terms of salary. Health IT salaries vary based on location and experience, but the median salary is $48,633. Benefits are usually included in employment packages, too.*
What’s the job market like for healthcare information technicians?
Simply put: stellar. Healthcare is one of the fastest-growing industries in the U.S., tech plays an increasing role in all industries, and the government-mandated implementation of electronic health records is putting healthcare IT professionals in high demand.*
How much tech experience do I need to take the Healthcare IT Professional program?
For the vast majority of our programs, you must be at least 18 years old, and you must have a high school diploma or a General Education Development (GED) certificate. That’s it. For others, some specific skills are required to enter a CareerStep training program. When it comes to our healthcare IT professional course, your previous education or experience level isn’t an issue. Familiarity with standard software programs and basic hardware components is useful, but you don’t need any specific knowledge or credentials in order to succeed in this program. We’ll get you up to speed.
