Current projects

MA Certification Boot Camp at Lodi Adult School

22 incumbent workers from Community Medical Centers (CMC) were enrolled in an intensive and fast-paced 6-week full commitment program at Lincoln Technical Academy/Lodi Adult School. Through the program, participants prepared for the California Certifying Board for Medical Assistants (CCMBA) certification and have registered to take the exam later this year. 


Through the collaborative educational partnership of Lincoln Technical Academy/Lodi Adult School, the training and curriculum have been tailored to fit the employment and skills requirements of CMC.
