Medical Assistant

In as little as 39 weeks, the Medical Assistant program prepares students to sit for the AMT Registered Medical Assistant Certification examination, a nationally recognized certification.

Graduates from the College for Technical Education are qualified for positions in clinics, doctor’s offices, hospitals and other healthcare settings.

Students learn the administrative and clinical skills necessary for employment in today’s healthcare industry. Students learn the basics including HIPAA, CPR and First Aid, as well as law and ethics, management and communication skills. Each step of the way our courses maintain a hands-on approach, further enhancing the educational experience.

As with all CTE programs, heavy emphasis is placed on preparation for work in the industry, with regular discussions of what employers look for, how to get and keep a job, resume preparation, mock interviews, post-interview follow-up and networking skills.

In the time it takes many students to complete a Medical Assistant program elsewhere, the College for Technical Education graduates are already employed and advancing in the Allied Health field.
