I am so glad that I chose MedCerts…

“I am so glad that I chose MedCerts online training program. This is a great school to learn valuable skills for starting a new career within the medical field or if a person is already in a medical environment and want to enhance their learning to go to another level. I just took my CEHRS National Exam on Saturday and have gotten my results back within 24 hours online. I PASSED!!! I am so overjoyed and thankful!:)...I would like to thank my Senior Academic Adviser who helped me to review for the exam. She is so patient and very knowledgeable in detail and answered any questions I had while we studied together. She was so confident in me that I will do great and that helped me to think positively that I would do well and pass!:).”
