“I would highly recommend the programs available through Medcerts. The one that I just completed was for Medical billing. The online program runs very smoothly and transitions nicely from one section to the next. I took a lot of notes and also printed study quizzes, and worked on those separately. The convenience of sitting at my computer at any part of the day and spend as much time as I wished to was great! Also, the fact that an advisor would check up on me regularly and was always available if needed. I believe that this program is set up to make their students successful. I hope to be certified soon and feel confident that I have the competence to start a new career.”
