Are you considering a career in healthcare? Our online medical assistant training program is a great way to start.

No prior work experience or college degree is required. All you need is a high school diploma or equivalent to start the healthcare career of your dreams.
Train to Become a Medical Assistant
Our Medical Assistant training program is your first step to this in-demand and rewarding career in the Allied Health field.
CCI Training Center’s program provides flexibility, hands-on experience, and collaboration with classmates, all under the supervision of experienced instructors who provide support for all coursework.
We provide you with the training, tools, and resources you need to be eligible to sit for the CCMA (Certified Clinical Medical Assistant) and the Certified Phlebotomy certifications through the National Healthcareer Association (NHA).
Online Accredited Vocational Training
Students of the Medical Assistant program attend hybrid online/in-person classes in the form of on-campus lectures and labs paired with online course material, providing the best of both approaches.
The program is designed to allow students to take care of bookwork at their own pace. In-person classes (held one to two times per week) serve a dual purpose:
- to give students an opportunity to see how to perform care skills and procedures in a classroom setting
- to fulfill state clinical requirements for completion of a medical assistant certification program
Some students can feel uncertain about finding employment after the final certification examination. To better prepare students for success, CCI requires that all Medical Assistant training program candidates participate in an externship to graduate.
Externships give students the opportunity to work side-by-side with other health care professionals, including medical assistants, nurses, and physician’s assistants.
This hands-on experience in the healthcare field eases the transition to full-time employment as a Certified Medical Assistant. As an added benefit, some students may be offered a permanent position with the medical facility after the completion of a successful externship.
An In-Depth Look at the Medical Assistant Program
In order to be eligible to sit for the National Healthcareer Association’s Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA) exam, students will need to complete a full series of courses. CCMAs may work in a variety of care settings, ranging from the private practice of a local physician to the most cutting-edge hospitals.
The staff and instructors will help you write your resume for the first time, review an existing resume, and provide job search resources. As graduation and certification exam day approaches, students will participate in mock medical assistant interviews. This professional development assistance is offered so that you feel confident going into the interview process.
Even after you have completed your studies and received a job offer, CCI Training Center provides job support skills training to help you successfully transition into your new career.
As you grow into your career as a medical assistant, we welcome you back to continue your education by obtaining additional certifications to drive your career onward, and to benefit from employment assistance.
