Allied Health CAA

The Allied Health Career Advancement Academy Program provides students with the basic skills they need to enter a variety of Allied Health programs and begin a career in the Allied Health industry. The Program provides a bridge of courses in English, Math, Counseling, and Introduction to Health Careers that prepare students for entry into healthcare programs the following semester. Students also have the benefit of participating in a learning community with additional faculty, staff, and counselor support and other students interested in healthcare. 

After successfully completing the Bridge courses, students can choose to enter into the Certified Nursing Assistant Certificate program, Medical Office Assistant Certificate Program, Emergency Medical Technician Certificate Program, and Sterile Processing Certificate Program.

(Please note: some certificate programs require additional coursework for entry). Once a student receives their certification, they can choose to move into a position in the Allied Health field or continue on to additional certificate programs and degrees.
