PROGRAMS

We only offer programs where jobs are ample in good times and in bad times.  Every program we offer are in high demand occupational fields that will not likely oscillate inordinately during economic hard times.  We follow trends very carefully and always seek out programs that will allow you to build a career without the fear of your job being outsourced or shipped overseas.  Normally companies that provide outsourcing in the healthcare industry are ones who supplement an existing workforce, not replacing it.

We have designed our programs to be efficient and effective cutting out the what you don't need and keeping in what you do need to build a long and successful career.  By thinking outside the box, it has allowed us to design our programs to offer two areas of study for the price and time of just one.  As a result, upon graduation from any one of our programs you will be awarded a diploma for two majors in your areas of study.  We are now offering the following programs:
       Primary Major:     Medical Assistant
Secondary Major:     Pharmacy Technician
 
Upon completion of this program you will be able to apply for jobs working as a medical assistant (front and back office), work in alternative medicine office (chiropractic, physical therapy, etc.), and pharmacy.  Our program mostly concentrates on community pharmacy instead of hospital.

Note:

High school graduation or GED completion required by the State of California Board of Pharmacy for registration and to legally become employed as a pharmacy technician.  California law explicitly outlines the responsibilities of a pharmacy technician separate from the pharmacist; so if you want to work as a pharmacy technician you must become registered with the Board of Pharmacy.  Our pharmacy technician program exceeds the minimum required by California law and does qualify you to become a registered pharmacy technician in the State of California.

It is important for you to know some important information on the occupations we train in before you make your decision.  Make sure you will enjoy working in the array of healthcare environments, job outlook and the lifestyle that will be afforded to you by choosing a career in the healthcare industry.  So make an informed decision, and you may want to check out the two links below before you trust your luck alone.

The United States Department of Labor (www.dol.gov) publishes an informational booklet for job seekers called the Occupational Outlook Handbook.  Click the links below to take you directly to their website.
