I have been extremely pleased

“As an experienced healthcare professional making a transition into the IT field, I have been extremely pleased with the support that MedCerts has given me from the time that I started taking their courses. Being a married professional with a child, my life is extremely busy, and the advantages that their online course offers are substantial. I would, in particular, like to acknowledge the tremendous support that I have received (and continue to receive) from the IT academic advisor. The team has all worked diligently, and gone above and beyond the call of duty, to resolve my concerns, and assist me with the completion of my IT program. I would heartily recommend MedCerts to anyone who is thinking about changing their current field, or acquiring a new skill set, while they are currently employed.”
