With fast track career training programs in Practical Nursing, Medical Assisting, and Medical Office Administration, we work hard to give students the best start possible in their careers. We are honored to provide these programs to students, so they can start their careers in months, not years.

Externship Highlight – Chestnut Ridge Counseling Services

Chestnut Ridge Counseling Services has been established in the Uniontown area since 1969. Its current site coordinator is Mary Jane Miller, Lead Psychiatric Nurse. She says, “Our services operate primarily by providing outpatient mental health services to the community, including adult and children services. We at Chestnut Ridge Counseling Services agree not to discriminate in the provision of services to an individual because of the inability to pay. Payment for these services would be made under Medicare, Medicaid, or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). We currently provide 24/7 crisis services, assertive community team, LTSR, outpatient, peer support services, adult partial hospitalization, and psychiatric rehabilitation services. These services can be obtained at our Uniontown and/or Connellsville locations. Looking forward to the growth of our organization, we are currently implementing our “open access”, which allows patients to be seen for same day services.”

Chestnut Ridge Counseling Services

United Career Institute- Mt. Braddock students get the opportunity to learn in a setting that is “hands-on” and that provides direct care to the public. Students are able to utilize organizational skills and gain knowledge in analytical skills to assist with problem-solving, compliance, documentation in the patient’s electronic health record, scheduling, triaging medication phone calls, and much more. “Our business values United students because it allows our organization to give feedback to the student regarding elements that are needed in an outpatient/medical setting”, Miller says.

Miller further explains, “The field of medicine is ever expanding, growing, and changing. Medical assistants have to be able to adapt to that change. With that said, the greatest advice that I could to anyone aspiring to enter the medical field is that it takes the initiative to succeed beyond their counterparts. Medical Assistants have a lot of responsibility in any medical office. They must be energetic, personable, and eager to learn. The medical staff counts on them for many things.”

United is proud to partner with reputable businesses such as Chestnut Ridge Counselling Services. If you are interested in pursuing a career as a medical assistant, requested information here now!

The Value of Fast Track Training

Do you want to start your career and get into your dream job faster? Want to take classes that teach exactly what you need to know for future jobs? Don’t want to waste four to six years in school? Then fast track career training may be perfect for you!

Fast track programs give students the opportunity to start their careers more quickly, earn valuable certifications, have increased flexibility, and take advantage of expanded career opportunities.

Read on as we share exactly why fast track training is so valuable!

Put Your Career On The Fast Track

Enrolling in a fast track training program enables students to start their careers more quickly than those who spend four to six years attending a traditional university. This gives students a head start in their careers because they can gain experience and start earning an income sooner.

The Value of Fast Track Training

Fast track training programs take less time for students to complete, and therefore, they are more career focused. This means that students don’t have to take general classes that don’t apply to their careers.

At  United Career Institute, our fast track career training programs can be completed in as little as 18 months, and students take the exact classes needed for their careers, because who wants to spend hours in classes they will never use?

Earn Hands-On Certifications

More and more, healthcare employers prefer that job candidates have professional certifications that are specific to the job in which they are applying. When students earn certifications offered by third-party organizations, it lets employers know that the students have the hands-on skills and experience necessary to complete the job.

Another advantage to fast track career training at United is that students have the opportunity to prepare and sit for professional certification tests as part of their program. In the Medical Assisting program, students prepare for the National Certified Clinical Medical Assistant, Certified EKG Technician, and Certified Phlebotomy Technician certification tests.

As part of our Medical Office Administration program, students prepare for the Certified Medical Administrative Assistant, Certified Billing and Coding Specialist, and Certified Electronic Health Records Specialist certification tests.

Increased Flexibility

For students who must balance work, family, and personal responsibilities while attending school, fast track career training offers the increased flexibility they need. Since students take the exact classes necessary for their careers, they have more time for everything else.

The ability to balance other responsibilities while attending a fast track training program can make a positive impact in the lives of students by allowing them to continue working and spending more time with family while completing their program.

Expanded Career Opportunities

Completing a fast track career training program and earning numerous professional certifications sets students up for success by providing them with expanded career opportunities. It shows prospective employers that you’re willing to work hard to meet your goals and can get the job done.

When applying for jobs, candidates who have completed career training and earned professional certifications stand out over those who have not. At United, our fast track training programs prepare students for actual careers, and we are committed to empowering each and every student to succeed.
