I wasn't sure I was going to be able to go to school but I wanted to be a Certified Medical Assistant. I came in with a lot of doubts about myself and my abilities to become a MA, but my admissions rep told me I could do it I just would have to work for it! She told me from the beginning, its going to be tough but the staff is friendly and willing to help. And when I had trouble in one of my classes and I asked the teacher for help outside of class just like that I was getting tutored. They stayed late, and came in early to make sure that I got what I needed to succeed. I can honestly say that it was tough, but I got my certification, and I am employed in the doctors office that I did my externship in. I would and have recommended this school to anyone!
