The enduring slump in California’s economy has aided the inauguration of changes in many career fields. New jobs are being created, as some jobs are disappearing forever. Yet other career fields are experiencing changes due to advances in technology. Some occupations have become more focused due to technological advances and could be considered new or emerging occupations.
With courses and programs that will help members of the community stay current on occupational skills and/or train for an alternative career field, College of the Canyons offers students multiple educational opportunities.
“Our goal is to provide affordable and accessible training through Community Education in a short time frame,” said Gina Bogna director of job development at the college. “We believe we are providing the classes and opportunities our community members want and need to build their skills.”
By partnering with other reputable educational institutions, the Community Education Department has been able to increase the breadth of training and development alternatives available to community members.
This fall, the Community Education Department will again offer the Administrative Medical Assistant training program again this fall. This is a high-demand, 11-week program that offers training on software currently used in medical offices. The program is designed for working adults, with classes offered in the evenings.
The program is very affordable compared to other vocational training schools in Santa Clarita. At a cost of $1,775, course fees include all required books, supplies, and to software access needed to complete the program.
Students must be at least 18 years of age to participate in this program and should have competency in basic computer operations, access to the Internet, and printing capabilities. Sample assessment questions, and an Administrative Medical Assistant occupational outlook report can be found on the college’s Community Education website at www.canyons.edu/medicaladmin.
