Our Mission

MedCerts is a leader in online healthcare and IT certification training. Our programs are state-of-the-art and custom created through the collaboration of our in-house production team, industry-recognized subject matter experts and education technological design team. Focused on in-demand careers and applicable job skills for our students, these programs are nationally recognized by accredited credentialing agencies and national employers. 

We’re bridging the gap between our students, job seekers, employers, higher education institutions and workforce agencies. Our multi-faceted approach lowers the barriers of entry to 2- and 4-year universities, tailors student training to the specific skills employers look for in hiring or upskilling current employees, and effectively fills workforce vacancies. Our mission is to build a network and affordable talent pipeline for all involved.

Our Mission
Results In…

  • Students gain access to knowledge, education and new career opportunities through learning-centric coaching that directly supports their career and education goals
  • Workforce partners get to improve outcomes, build grant funding and strengthen the workforce
  • Employers get opportunities to fill vacancies, upskill staff and create talent pipelines
  • Academic Institutions have access to an expanded catalog and a broader, more diverse audience of students
  • Team members gain the opportunity to work in an inclusive, innovative workplace helping our students and partners

Our Vision

We envision a future where adult learners can pursue a new career or higher education without lifetime debt, employers can build talent pipelines of skilled, qualified talent – and ultimately where the workforce vacancy crisis is eliminated.

We will accomplish this by expanding our program offerings, building on our learner-centric student outreach and continuing to grow our partnerships with healthcare employers and academic institutions.
