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.”
Are you looking to open doors to more career opportunities within the medical field? We want to learn more about you! Fill out the below form so one of our admissions representatives can get in touch today.
