I was in a position that I needed to change my career in my mid 50’s. I had previously researched the local colleges and selected Carrington college based upon accreditation and location. I couldn’t have made a better choice. The staff and faculty assist in helping every student succeed in their goals. They encourage the teamwork and work ethic that applies in the work place. Toward the end of the program and after graduation, Career Services is very active in assisting students in finding employment. I found a Medical Assisting position that was available just after finishing the program and passed the CMA (AAMA) exam just prior to starting work. I am very happy with my Carrington College experience and the skills that were taught. Having now been in the work force with graduates from other colleges, I can state that Carrington College Medical Assisting program prepares students better than some other programs in the Portland area.
