Advanced Technical Career College (ATCC) has partnered with MedCerts, the innovation leader in online career training in allied health and information technology and a subsidiary of Stride, Inc., an education company providing online and blended education programs, to offer MedCerts courses to students.
The new partnership diversifies the educational opportunities ATCC offers students and expands the reach of MedCerts’ high-quality healthcare training programs.
With recent reports finding that 77 per cent of employers are having trouble filling roles due to talent shortages, this new alliance aims to address those shortages and arm individuals with the skills they need to fill in-demand positions.
Commenting on the collaboration, Chief Executive Officer of MedCerts, Craig Sprinkle, said:
We are thrilled to partner with ATCC to create and encourage a collaborative learning environment that draws on both of our strengths. By leveraging each other’s strengths and shared resources, we will achieve our goals and improve the education experience of our students.
MedCerts aims to build a network and affordable talent pipeline for all involved. Focused on certifications in high-demand Allied Healthcare and IT areas, the platform serves individuals from all backgrounds, including the military and their families, career changers, and the under and unemployed. The company delivers certification and career training through HD-quality video-based instruction, virtual simulations, games and animations, and on-the-job training through experiential learning solutions. It envisions a future where adult learners can pursue a new career or higher education without lifetime debt, employers can build talent pipelines of skilled, qualified talent – and ultimately, where the workforce vacancy crisis is eliminated.
As a leader in online healthcare, MedCerts has helped more than 55,000 students earn credentials and start new careers in the in-demand fields of healthcare and IT. It has developed over 50 immersive online national certification training programs with best-in-class outcomes.
