“I loved taking my courses with Medcerts. I like the fact I'm not set with a specific time and day to do my course work. Courses are easy to navigate and get through. I love working with my Students advisor, she was awesome always reaching out to encourage me as well as check up on me to see if i was having any issues. Over a great play to get your certification and know you will know what you're doing when you're done.”
