Career Step’s Medical Assistant Level 1 is 320 hours of curriculum covering key skills in obtaining patient vital signs, wound care, medical record keeping and more. However, the online format allows you to study on your own schedule and at your own pace, so your enrollment includes 6 months of program access to ensure that you have the time you need to complete your training. Enroll in Level 2 to complete your training for the national Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA) certification and complete an externship experience.
