Earn the Competitive Edge of a Double Certification
Employers look for certifications when hiring Medical Assistants. The more training you bring, the greater your employment opportunities. Graduates of the WellSpring Medical Assisting Certificate Program are eligible and fully prepared to sit for two certification exams:
- Nationally Registered Certified Medical Assistant Exam
- Nationally Registered Certified Phlebotomy Technician Exam
It is also possible to become certified in a specialty, such as podiatry, optometry, or ophthalmology. With experience and/or additional training, many Medical Assistants advance to other occupations, such as teaching, nursing, and office management.
