Williamsburg, VA – Williamsburg residents now have convenient training close to home. For the first time, Thomas Nelson Community College (TNCC) in partnership with Boston Reed College will offer a one-day-a-week, fast paced Certified Clinical Medical Assistant training program at the new Discovery Center for Economic and Workforce Development in Williamsburg. Classes for this affordable, six-month program are offered only on Saturdays, making it ideal for busy adults seeking a quick entry into the health care industry. The program begins July 25, 2009 and ends on Saturday, January 23, 2010.
“We want to provide accelerated short-term training opportunities for people living in the Historic Triangle area,” said Dr. Denise Seigfeldt, TNCC Director of Continuing and Professional Education. “With the current economic downturn and layoffs, people are looking for fast career training that will lead to good-paying jobs. This program meets their needs,” adds Siegfeldt. The program offers a hands-on externship for all participants, and education loans are available.
