Adult Education at Jackson Area Career Center expands options for medical programs

December 14, 2022

Jackson, Mich. – The Jackson Area Career Center’s Adult Career Education program is making it easier for people to reach their career goals and build professional skills related to the healthcare industry. 

Starting in January 2023, health career classes will be offered in various formats, including online, in-person, and a hybrid of both. The revised delivery of curriculum was based on feedback from working students and those with families who wanted more options to meet their needs.

Classes include Medical Assistant, Medical Office Assistant, Medical Insurance Billing & Coding, Phlebotomy, Electrocardiography, and Patient Care Technician. The revised curriculum also means shorter and more frequent classes, while keeping the overall length the same. Pricing has also been revamped, and now includes books, a blood pressure kit, and national testing review materials. 

All classes offered take less than a year to complete, with some taking as little as a couple of months. Upon completion, students will be prepared with the latest skills and tools to start a new career or add to a resume. Students are also prepared to test for industry-approved national credentialing exams. 

In addition to many medical classes, the Career Center’s Adult Career Education program also offers classes to enhance a hobby or passion, like welding and auto body. All classes are offered in the evenings. For more information, visit the Adult Career Education at the Jackson Area Career Center’s webpage or on Facebook
