CLEVELAND, WI – 

Lakeshore Technical College is offering a refresher workshop to help prepare Medical Assistants to successfully complete a national credentialing exam and become credentialed. The workshop will take place over the course of three days on February 2, 9 and 16 from 5:30-9:30pm on the Cleveland campus in the Cleveland Training Room. 
 
Credentialed Medical Assistants provide a unique and important role in the healthcare system and can add considerable value to a medical practice.

Key exam topics will cover administrative, clinical, and laboratory skills and general medical assisting knowledge using a variety of teaching techniques including practice exam questions.

The instructors for the workshop are LTC Medical Assistant Faculty Coleen Allee, Lisa Huehns and Lori Rooker.  LTC's Medical Assistant Program is accredited by ABHES.
