4 MyCAA Healthcare Programs You Don’t Want To Miss | MedCerts

Is Short-Term Online Career Training Right for You?

Healthcare is the fastest growing industry in America. In the next decade, there will be an estimated 1.9 million new job openings because of the country’s:

  • Aging population
  • Greater accessibility to healthcare
  • Increase in serious diseases and health risks
  • Affordable career training opportunities

In the coming years, there will be many healthcare job openings no matter where you live. With growing demand, professionals in healthcare will be able to earn more and create meaningful career paths for themselves. These "portable careers" provide mobility, meaning you'll likely be able to find a job no matter where you and your family live.

As a military spouse, you may be eligible for a scholarship through MyCAA, or My Career Advancement Account. To receive this financial assistance, you'll need to determine which of the MyCAA-approved programs is best for you. 

As a MyCAA school, MedCerts offers scores of high-quality online training courses to prepare you for some of the most sought-after areas of the industry. We also cover lesser known career options in healthcare that still offer meaningful work and benefits. Here are just a few:

Cardio-Phlebotomy Technician

As a cardio-phlebotomy technician, you’ll be responsible for taking the patient’s blood when a doctor orders an echocardiogram or a stress test. You’ll need to know how to:

  • Read vital signs
  • Start an IV
  • Monitor the patient
  • Perform blood draw and specimen testing procedures

If you have a calm disposition and a steady hand, you could become an important part of a medical team. In just 15 weeks with MedCerts, you will be prepared for your certification exam to begin this exciting career.

Medication Care Coordinator

A behind-the-scenes professional, a medication care coordinator is responsible for ensuring that pharmacists, doctors, nurses, and other medical staff work together to help patients receive the medication they need to feel better.

This career requires certification as a medical administrative assistant and a pharmacy technician. With MedCerts, you'll be ready for your exams in 22 weeks. Afterward, you'll be on track to earn up to $70,000 a year.

Behavior Technician Specialist

As a registered behavior technician specialist, you’ll work directly with a licensed, board-certified behavior analyst to conduct one-on-one sessions with patients. As outlined by a doctor, you will support folks through hardships such as:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Physical abuse
  • Substance abuse
  • Other mental health and behavioral struggles

Although challenging, the career is rewarding and begins with an 11-week course toward certification.
