Medical Assistant Certification

Medical Assistants greet patients in medical offices or other medical settings where they help doctors with examinations and treatments. They run routine lab tests such as urinalysis and take vital signs and run EKGs. They may give injections or perform ‘finger sticks’ to draw small amounts of blood if they are properly trained. Assistants may instruct patients about medication and self-treatment. High School Diploma or GED required. All students must pass an English and Math proficiency test. To receive program certification students must complete all classes within a 2-year time frame.

All courses offer a full range of opportunities in preparation for the CCMA or RMA exam.
