Occupational Certification

Most Healthcare professionals have experience, but lack documentation. 

Our certification workshops are designed to give the healthcare professional a refresher course or continuing medical education hands-on class that includes certification, because most employers only hire healthcare professionals with valid certification.

Qualified participants that successfully complete the certification program will be able sit for the exam the same day provided by one of our certification partners. Please visit each of the certification provider's website to view their certification exam requirements. Certification is valid for two years from the date the exam was taken and must be renewed every 2 years via continuing education or re-examination.

Why Take a Certification Exam?
Certification is a demonstration of your mastery in your chosen medical career.  And since certification is voluntary, it represents not only compliance with established medical standards, but also highlights your personal commitment to quality and professionalism.

Being certified not only establishes your competence and commitment to continuing professional education but also demonstrates to employers that you are capable of more advanced job responsibility.  Allied health certification programs help the medical industry make these distinctions by establishing a standard of competence in specific job roles.

Employers are looking for ways to distinguish among employees and job applicants.  Certification tells the employer that you have the solid foundation of skills needed for effective performance and a commitment to staying current to the rapidly changing medical health care field.
