Meditec Announces Partnership with Higher Learning Institution National American University
Students can now transfer Meditec certification hours for National American University associate program credits valued up to $9,500
AUSTIN, Texas, April 3, 2019 – Meditec, a division of 360training.com and a leader in quality career training for growing industries, and National American University (NAU), an online, multi-location institution of higher learning, are joining forces to help those in the military, their families and students from all backgrounds earn associate degrees in medical fields. The partnership, effective immediately, allows students to transfer up to 22.5 credit hours from Meditec certificates to NAU for associate degree credits. Students will simultaneously earn college credits while obtaining career-oriented certificates, allowing them to quickly jumpstart their careers. These credits are valued up to $9,500 for NAU courses.
NAU now accepts credits from four high-demand Meditec certificates:
- Clinical Medical Technician
- Medical Administrative Assistant with Billing and Coding
- Dental Assisting
- Retail Pharmacy Technician and Customer Service Representative
“We are excited to partner with National American University to make it easier for our students seeking higher education to earn professional certifications and associate degrees,” says Tom Anderson, CEO of Meditec and 360training.com. “Meditec and NAU share a goal of helping Military spouses enter new careers by offering education that supports immediate and long-term success in fields that are both in-demand and flexible for military families. It’s an honor to give back to those who serve our country by providing meaningful resources to reach professional success.”
Meditec and NAU both share long-term, valued relationships with the military, offering reduced tuition rates for any person with an active military ID. This unique partnership nurtures this relationship with the military by allowing military spouses to get more mileage out of the MyCAA grants. Rather than choosing between earning a certificate or associate degree, the grant will be available to use for both so that students can secure one and still work toward the other. There are no other MyCAA certificate programs that partner with a university, making this a unique opportunity for students.
Ideal for students with growing families or shifting locations, all Meditec and NAU courses are available online. Additionally, courses are self-paced, so students can earn their certificates and/or associate degrees in their own time.
Meditec, a division of 360training.com, is a leader in online career training. The certification program provides tools and resources for students working toward entering new fields, offering flexible, self-paced courses in the medical and healthcare, business, legal, creative arts and fitness industries. Meditec operates from the core belief that education is a fundamental requirement for success and happiness in life.
