I got an unexpected job with a doctor’s office. I turned in my resume and showed that I had my medical assistant and phlebotomy certifications, and they called me back the same day.
The RRCC Program was recommended to me, and I thought the program itself was great. Although the training is detailed and a lot of information to take in, I enjoyed the training, and would recommend it as well…

The training was a fantastic opportunity. No one ever wants a weak area, and this training helped me fill in gaps that make me feel stronger and more powerful in my knowledge base. It has added to my confidence, my professionalism, and empowers me to go further in my career.
Since taking the HITCM-PP course, the knowledge that I gained showed my current employer that I am qualified enough to be the branch manager of our new office. This credential has allowed the physicians and other staff in my office to value my opinion and take it into consideration, which I am very appreciative of.
Tech Quest Apprenticeship
Tech Quest Apprenticeship (TQA) is a $12M US Department of Labor-funded initiative led by Clark University. The TQA award is divided among more than a dozen higher education institutions and expert workforce development organizations. CommHIT is one of them because CommHIT is known for its workforce development in rural and underserved areas and its capacity to recruit under-represented groups into tech workforce nationwide. CommHIT performs workforce development for tech and health sector throughout all 50 states, in DC, and in U.S. Territories.
For TQA, CommHIT enrolled 574 tech workforce trainees, and 95.3% of those trainees are women. This is particularly important as women currently only represent 26.7% of the tech workforce. With TQA support, CommHIT was able to apply its successful workforce development model to infuse the male-dominated tech field with women.
