Our Unemployment Training Benefits Last A Student’s Lifetime — MedCerts

Jobs that pay workers well enough to support themselves and their families usually require specific training beyond the high school level, but not everyone has the resources or time available to access that training.

Certifications can be the perfect solution to fast-track the career success of busy students. By using their unemployment benefits to enroll in a credential program, your clients can take advantage of specialized training that doesn’t require the lengthy time commitment or cost of a two or four-year degree.

They can also bypass having to sit through classes that aren’t directly related to their career goals. In less time than it takes traditional students to fulfill their general education requirements, your clients can finish training and start working at their new jobs.

The benefits of certification training go far beyond just financial — as crucial as that is. These advantages carry over into all aspects of a student's life and will last a lifetime. Some of the perks of career training offered by MedCerts include:

Confidence

There’s no better way to build confidence than by taking action – as action leads to competence, which leads to self-belief, and finally to confidence. When your clients complete their training and can obtain meaningful, rewarding work that helps them contribute to the well-being of their family, their self-assurance will soar. Setting and achieving goals shows students that they have what it takes to make positive changes in their lives. This confidence will create a lasting positive cycle.

Adaptability

The fields of healthcare and information technology are rapidly growing and will be in high demand for years to come. MedCerts programs provide entry into these fields and equip students with the foundational skills they need to be able to continue to adapt and grow in their professional knowledge.

There is always new information to learn in these fields, and online learning is not just a convenient way to gain new skills but also the expected route. By completing a MedCerts program with student advisor support, your clients will be better prepared to continue their education throughout their careers.

Opportunity

Our student success advisors and career coaches help students take advantage of all of the opportunities that workforce funding will provide. From interactive, accessible training to national certification and permanent jobs, students have opportunities that will open doors for them.

Networking and Relationships

Connections are built through shared experiences. The connections your clients form with others will strengthen their business relationships, advance their careers, and help them stay on top of new developments in their fields. Networking with others in their industry is also a great way for your clients to get career advice and support, experience a different perspective, and build lifelong personal relationships.

Making a Difference

Perhaps, the most important benefit students receive from career-readiness training through MedCerts is the knowledge that they're making a difference — both in their own lives and the lives of others.

Our world is facing tremendous challenges that can feel overwhelming. Healthcare and information technology are two of the fields that are at the forefront of addressing these challenges. Knowing that they're making the world a better place through their efforts lets your clients claim their positive agency.
