trustpilot 4.8/5 trustpilot
  • 2023 was a rough year for me. I lost a lot but I also gained a lot. I desperately needed to start working, but I wanted to spend my time on starting a career and not working a typical 9-5 that I won’t grow in or be happy in. I decided to do research and stumbled upon Health Tech Academy. I gave them a call and I was very happy to know that it was at my own pace and I could get finished as quickly as I was capable. The only other thing I needed to figure out was the financial aspect of it, I was nervous about that. Luckily, there was an affordable payment plan! Because I have health care knowledge already, I was happy to see that I got through the program very quickly and was satisfied with the learning experience.
