Is Short-Term Online Career Training Right for You?

MedCerts is an established online training program that helps job seekers build their credentials and pave the way toward rewarding careers. Our programs are ideal for individuals using workforce funding for many reasons – they’re flexible and short-term, but especially because they lead to jobs.

When your clients enroll in a MedCerts program, you can expect personalized online skills training that leads to nationally recognized certifications. Each of our 35+ data-driven and dynamic programs is infused with our core values of empowerment, tenacity and service.

In a matter of weeks or months, students can begin a career in one of the following in-demand industries:

  • Healthcare and Medical
  • Professional Development
  • Information Technology (IT)

What’s it like being a MedCerts student? Learn all about the perks and benefits below.

Workforce Funding Approved

We believe that higher education should be accessible to everyone, no matter the cost. This is why the majority of MedCerts programs cost $4000 or less. We accept WIOA funding and are always exploring other workforce funding opportunities. We've partnered with American Job Centers across the country and are an approved training vendor in over 30 states.

Our Regional Workforce Managers and Admissions Advisors are experts in the world of workforce funding and understand the restrictions and regulations of the grant. We'll help prospective students with every step of the MedCerts application process. We also know what information case managers (like you) need for reporting and have systems in place to provide that data on-demand.

Counting on Student Support Services

Once your client is approved for funding, they can embark on an educational journey customized to their individual interests and needs.

Although students will experience the flexibility of a self-paced eLearning model, they still have the full support of a professional team of personal Student Support Coordinators that will be at their disposal from orientation through certification. This includes:

  • An enrollment specialist
  • A student success advisor
  • A career coach

Fortunately, the team isn’t there to dictate how and when students learn — but to support MedCerts students, motivate them and keep them on track to help them succeed.

Using a State-of-the-Art Learning Management System

Our new and improved Learning Management System makes distance learning a breeze.

In a typical day, a MedCerts student would sign into their account to complete a variety of tasks, including:

  • Planning for future assignments and completion dates located in the Activities Calendar so that they never fall behind
  • Checking what activities are up next in the Program Schedule and completing them at pace
  • Accessing a number of innovative features to keep their education fun, such as 3D animations, immersive environments, and game-based learning
  • Tracking how well they’re doing in the Program Progress Bar

This setup also allows you to stay up to date on how your clients are doing by sending you progress report updates.

Benefiting From Career Placement Help

In addition to their studies, a day in the life of a MedCerts student might include planning and preparing for their future career.

Through MedCerts, students have access to our full career service resources. This includes our expert career coaches, a job search toolkit with hours of downloadable content and opportunities with job placement services and national partnerships with hospitals and pharmacies.

The Takeaway

As a MedCerts student, your client will have 24/7 access to innovative and industry-focused training, as well as extensive student support services. And you’ll have peace of mind knowing we share your same goals and our workforce team is always working to make your job easier.
