MyCareerSkill.org is a distance learning initiative from Fisk University to provide self-paced, user-friendly multimedia, simulations, and, more importantly, one-on-one assistance from expert instructors and certification professionals.
Our mission is to prepare students and workers for high-demand jobs and careers. To this effect, our instructors develop and offer individualized short-duration training courses in health information systems administration---including information technology (IT) and medical administrative assistant certifications.
We provide the necessary skills to earn nationally recognized certifications in high-demand areas. The main beneficiaries of the program are the underemployed, unemployed, disabled, dislocated workers and students. But, also individuals interested in changing careers or improving their information-age skills.
The short courses (six months) are taught using innovative, friendly, mentor-assisted, self-paced learning technologies. So, students and participants can set their own learning schedule and pace depending on their needs and career goals.
These career certification training programs are offered as non-credit continuing-education and do not lead to an academic degree.
