'Career Step' at Gulf Coast State College

Panama City, Fla. -

Gulf Coast State College is putting the word out on a healthcare program for job seekers looking for quick employment, and its all online.

The program, called 'Career Step,' prepares students for careers in medical coding and billing, medical transcription, and medical administrative assisting. The courses are short term, non-credit, certificate courses. Most of them allow you to earn a certificate within a few months. Sherrie Lock with GCSC says the program came into existence when the economy declined several years ago and people came to her looking for ways to break into the medical field.

"They can easily go through this training, prepare for the national certification, and secure employment within a fairly quick period of time," Lock said.
