At MedCerts, key partnerships are critical in achieving our goal of helping people earn the credentials they need to pursue and sustain rewarding careers. Our goal is always to provide our students with a comprehensive education that’s focused on their interested job paths, and it makes it much easier for our students when we have a dedicated ally.
Enter the American Job Centers. These workforce agencies work closely with MedCerts to “help businesses find qualified workers and help job seekers obtain employment and training services to enhance their careers.” In other words, it’s the perfect win-win for businesses and job candidates.
Keep reading to learn more about how these job centers provide government assistance programs for education, as well as the workforce development programs we offer here at MedCerts.
American Job Centers (AJCs) are a critical part of the workforce investment system, which was continued by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act in 2014. AJCs provide programs to those who are eligible for government assistance for education and/or training. Right now there are nearly 2,500 AJCs in 26 states, all of which are funded by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration.
The idea is to give workers, job seekers, and businesses the services they need in one convenient location. Per the benefits.gov website, these services include:
There are two types of AJCs: Comprehensive and Affiliate. The Comprehensive AJCs provide a multitude of services, while the Affiliates are more limited. A specific perk found in Comprehensive AJCs is the resource room, which (according to careeronestop.com) includes “computers with internet, telephones, and fax machines.” Though these resource rooms are self-service, they are typically staffed to help workers and job seekers who need a helping hand.
We want workers and job seekers to know about the valuable services these state workforce agencies provide, all for the sake of them being able to take advantage of government-paid training programs. To see if you’re eligible for the benefit, answer the questionnaire on the benefits.gov website.
However, we often find that the staff at these agencies don’t even know that MedCerts’ career training programs are approved for the people they help daily. We have four areas of certification, with a heavy focus on healthcare. Here’s a quick rundown of what we offer.
With serious growth projected for the healthcare industry, certified professionals will be in high demand over the next decade. The right training program can either help job seekers kickstart (or take the next step in) a promising career path. Our certification programs include:
Another ever-expanding industry, IT professionals also enjoy job security and multiple paths for advancing a lucrative career. With the right training and certification, you can find a job that fits your specific skills and personality.
Our manufacturing certification program is designed to provide students with critical soft skills and workforce readiness traits so they can set themselves apart in a competitive industry and learn machining fundamentals.
These certifications are perfect for those who are interested in or just starting a career in project management, as well as project team members who want to demonstrate their project management knowledge.
Hopefully, this gives you a better understanding of what an AJC is and what our capabilities are—whether you’re a person seeking a job, or work in an AJC and are helping job seekers find employment. As we said at the outset, the right partnerships benefit all parties. And by working collaboratively with American Job Centers, we can help job seekers and businesses alike achieve their goals.

If you are a military spouse or your training is provided through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), you may be eligible for financial assistance to cover all or some of your tuition.
