Bert's Alerts - July 31, 2015
“I finished my Medical Assistant! I was in the workforce development class and it was amazing! I had so much fun learning everything and enjoying my time with my instructor Donna Heathman along with the 6 other students I got to go through this experience with. I feel comfortable in what I learned and can't wait to get out there and work as an MA!!!”
