Charter College sees demand for health care workers

Charter College career service and educator teams watch trends to stay on top of job growth and business demand. Then, they give thier students

the tools they need to change their lives through career-specific education and training, while also working with community leaders to provide the skilled employees they need.

One trend they’ve been watching for some time is the growing demand for skilled health care workers, due to the growth and aging of America, along with technological advances in medicine.

To help address this demand, Charter College Canyon Country, located at 19034 Soledad Canyon Road, offers Dental Assisting and Medical assistant programs. Both can be completed in less than a year. The Medical Assistant program incorporates a combination of clinical, technical and business skills, preparing graduates for entry-level employment in a variety of positions, including medical assistant, clinical assistant, medical receptionist or medical office assistant.

The Dental Assisting program prepares graduates to work under the supervision of dentists performing a variety of patient care, office and laboratory duties, with responsibilities that could include sterilizing and disinfecting instruments and equipment; preparing and laying out materials; taking dental x-rays; and processing x-ray film.

Charter College’s innovative blend- ed learning curriculum combines a hands-on classroom experience with online course work, offering students more flexibility with their schedules, allowing them to work and manage family life.
