FSCJ to Host Pinning Ceremony for ESOL Students in Medical Assisting Program
WHAT: Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ) will honor the first cohort of graduates from the ESOL English Literacy Career and Technical Education (ELCATE) Medical Assisting Career Certificate (C.C.) program with a pinning ceremony.
ELCATE, a language support framework, helps students train to become a medical assisting professional in 10 months or less while taking ESOL classes. The Medical Assistant C.C. prepares students for high-demand medical office positions and provides foundational knowledge in patient care and clinical experience. Students learn medical terminology, filing insurance claims, processes for taking medical histories, vital signs and assisting with exams.
The pinning ceremony will honor the efforts and achievements of this first cohort of students, which began the program in fall 2019. Since that time, they have worked through the rigorous program to complete the training and education to successfully enter the workforce.
WHEN: Thursday, September 9, 2021
