Looking for the Key to Career Success? It Starts With Professional Development

Learn How Professional Development Courses Such As Our NCMA Test Prep Course Can Open Doors For Your Career

More than ever, continuous professional development has become crucial for finding career success. And while the effect it can have on your paycheck can be significant (especially over the lifetime of your career), there are many other benefits to professional development that often go unnoticed.

Here are a few of them:

  • One of the biggest is the effect that it can have on your health. Research shows that learning new things is like physical exercise for your mind. The more you learn, the more of a workout your brain gets. This can help to increase overall brain connectivity, reduce stress, and ultimately extend your lifespan.
  • Professional development also increases social engagement and creates more networking opportunities. Whenever you invest in yourself and your career, people take notice. Learning new ideas means that you have more to talk about and that you’ll have greater confidence in your professional abilities.
  • It’s also been shown to make you a better team player. When you engage in continuous learning, it opens you up to new perspectives and makes you more open to your colleagues’ ideas and points of view as well.
  • And finally, professional development enhances curiosity. Curiosity drives people to take their knowledge even further. As we age, curiosity often slips into the background as habits and routines accumulate. Professional development helps you to break free from your usual roles and see your career and yourself in a new light.

For all of these reasons, here at Career Training Academy, we’re excited to let you know that we have our own professional development courses available.

One of our most popular professional development offerings is our prep course for the National Certified Medical Assistant (NCMA) Test.

If you’re working as a Medical Assistant and you haven’t yet taken the NCMA Test, you owe it to yourself unlock the benefits that professional development can bring.

Get the training you need to feel confident taking the NCMA Test in only four short Saturday sessions. And unlike many review courses, our NCMA Test Prep Course meets in-person and involves hands-on activities and practice.
