Career opportunities are created through education and experience.
Claudia Morales never set out to be a teacher. She was working as a medical assistant for over 12 years, working in the hospital in pediatrics as well as an EKG tech, but she longed to gain some additional knowledge. She enrolled in Southern Careers Institute’s online medical billing & coding program and while doing so, discovered a new passion–educating fellow students. “I enjoyed being a student and I LOVE teaching,” she gushes. We interviewed her in August 2017, a mere four months after graduating from SCI. Ms. Morales teaches several medical assistant courses now including EKG, Phlebotomy, and ANP, Anatomy & Physiology at the SCI Harlingen campus. However, she would never be able to be given this career opportunity, if it was not for the multiple certifications that she had earned and her experience in the medical field.

Certifications dominate job descriptions.

Still not convinced that certifications can help get you that steady career opportunity you’ve been looking for? Check for yourself. In recent search we did for “medical assistant” on Indeed.com, out of the first 10 job listings that came up, 8 of them required at least one certification or at least 1 year of medical assistant experience (SCI’s Medical Assistant training program can be completed in as little as 9 months and offers preparation for certifications.)

So, we had to ask Ms. Morales: as someone who has been both on the student side and an instructor at SCI. What advice would she give for someone considering taking classes at Southern Careers Institute? The upside, she says, is that “they can take the phlebotomy exam so they can be phlebotomist, they can prepare to take the EKG exam, so they can be EKG techs, and then of course, your CCMA. So those are good perks going to SCI.”
