There are more medical jobs available than ever before, but most require many years of education beyond a traditional college degree. A high school diploma or general equivalency diploma is required for enrollment in the Certified Clinical Medical Assistant program, making it an excellent opportunity for recent high school graduates to begin a rewarding career.
Here are some of its benefits:
- Increased Employment Opportunities
Certification as a Clinical Medical Assistant is an excellent addition to your CV and may be the deciding factor in getting you a call.
- Additional Job Opportunities
Through Nursing Assistant Training, Certified Medical Assistants (CMAs) are among the most adaptable allied health professionals, with a broader range of employment opportunities. You will be able to work in a broader range of medical settings, from pediatrics to urgent care, if you are certified.
- Higher Pay = Higher Qualification
Aside from the ability to apply for jobs for which you would not otherwise be qualified, becoming a Certified Medical Assistant increases your value to employers and may result in a higher starting salary.
- Stability and more advantageous shift hours
If you want to work as a CMA with a consistent 8 AM -5 PM schedule rather than more unpredictable shift work, a certification from our basic nursing assistant training program, can broaden your options and help you get what you want.
- Potential for Growth
Those seeking a career in medicine should consider becoming a Certified Medical Assistant. This is an excellent way to get started and progress to a more specialized position. Working as a CMA is an excellent way to gain professional healthcare experience.
