The courses online were great

"My two favorite parts of the course were, first, the simulations, which make you feel like you’re getting used to a new career. I also liked the go-at-your-own pace learning. It’s nice to know you can take a second, regroup, and try it all over again. For someone who’s going to school later in life, it was great."

Courtney Rosati
The MedCerts program was very easy to follow

"The certificate program taught me a lot about the physiology of the heart, more in-depth stuff I didn’t know. It gave me a better understanding of what I was looking at with the EKGs. I’m one of the more informed technicians at my current job because of this course."
