Jamie Duff

The day I visited Career Training Academy I knew it was the right choice
for me. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. They were excited to
help me start my future. Everyday I came to school, I was excited. I always
looked forward to learning new things. The faculty prepared me with in
depth knowledge and hands on clinical training that gave me the confidence
to do well in the medical field. I now completed my externship and was
hired on fulltime through Allegheny Health Network as a medical assistant.
My externship site was very impressed with the knowledge I brought to the
table. I am proud that my degree came from Career Training Academy and
would recommend this school to anyone looking to make a positive decision
for their future.

I wanted a career, not just a job and at Career Training Academy they have small classes and they have instructors that actually work in the field that they teach.

Stanley Blackwell, Medical Assistant Graduate

I knew I didn’t want the 4 year college life. Career Training Academy was my first choice. The advanced Bodyworker degree program was exactly what I was looking for. I love what I do, and I enjoy the people and I am proud of the help that I can give them.

Resa Bush, Massage Therapy Graduate

I wanted to be a provider for my family and an example for my children. Medical Assisting is an excellent field to work in with plenty of opportunities to grow. I recommend CTA to anyone. Career Training Academy was the right school for me; the small classes, caring instructors, and hands on training with exactly what I was looking for.

Nicoya Walker, Medical Assistant Graduate

A big university just wasn’t for me, I was lost and confused. The medical field was the right fit for me. There are lots of opportunities and room for growth.

Kayleigh Gieraltowski, Medical Coding and Billing Graduate

I needed skills so I could take care of myself and my children, I wanted a career. Because of Career Training Academy I have a career that’s fun, helps others and the financial stability to take care of my family.

Sharen Ray, Medical Assistant Graduate

CTA is the best! I received my Associates Degree in Massage Therapy in April, 2004.  I had the best learning experience while attending CTA.  My teachers were excellent and really made every class interesting and made me excited to learn. After graduating, the placement department actually placed me immediately into a position at a chiropractic office and I absolutely loved it!  I currently still work for a chiropractic office and couldn’t be happier!  The placement is for lifetime, so in the event I ever need to find employment, no questions asked, they are more than happy to help.  And the best, any class you have previously taken you can take a refresher class at NO COST for a LIFETIME! Thank you CTA!

Cami Collins, Graduate, Associate Degree in Massage Therapy

With the consolidated learning schedule, (15 consecutive months) I was able to get back in to the work force much quicker than at a regular community college. I obtained my Associates Degree in Specialized Business – Medical Coding. That, coupled with CTA’s externship placement program (not found in other schools), I was given the opportunity to use my education and successfully obtain a position with UPMC as a Coder I in the radiology department.
