Prior to coming to NTI, I got out of military. I was working as a mechanic and in retail, but I was looking for a career that would support my family. I pursued the medical assistant program because of the availability of jobs and the stability of the career. After about 6 months at NTI, I left with a national certification for clinical medical assisting. What I liked best about NTI was that the instructors provided a professional, real-world training environment and an excellent education.
