Success Story

Blue Ridge CTC has a small school feel with many options in Allied Health.

The Medical Assisting program offered a great externship in pain management. The HIM program provided experience in Patient Financial Services. I gained experience taking vital signs, working with Excel, Medisoft, and Allscripts.
Classes are small, and the instructors have many years of experience. There are many options with Ed2go and opportunities in the Fast Track program. I have already taken 3 Ed2go classes, Introduction to Excel, Computers in the Workplace, and Outlook.
