Recommendation

We highly recommend taking the Clinical Medical Assistant (CMA) program in conjunction to the NCRT program.  As a Clinical Medical Assistant students will have many doors of opportunity open in the healthcare arena. The CMA (or MA) works in a doctor’s office or clinic setting.  Medical Assisting is the 6th fastest growing job in the US according to the Department of Labor.  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, “Health Services” is the fastest growing industry after computers.

Graduates will be qualified to take the optional certification examination for Medical Assisting offered by the National Center of Competency Testing (NCCT.)  This program was designed to provide thorough didactic and practical instruction for as an overview of the role of the medical assistant in a clinical setting.  Didactic lectures cover the theory and terminology pertaining to different systems.  Practical instruction provides hands-on training in the listed procedures verified through a skills check-off system. This course combines classroom instruction of 140 hours and off-site externship of 160 hours to provide students with a comprehensive learning experience.
