Medical Assistant Registered Apprenticeship Program Seeking Applicants

Local healthcare providers have a critical need for qualified Medical Assistants (MAs). The Medical Assistant Registered Apprenticeship Program (MARAP) was developed to address this need. Like traditional apprenticeships, the program combines classroom learning with hands-on experience in a clinical setting. This combination creates highly-skilled, ready-to-work talent for local healthcare providers.

The MA Registered Apprenticeship Program provides many opportunities to participants:

  • Apprentices graduate with a Medical Assistant Certificate of Completion, a certifiecate of completion of apprenticeship from the US Department of Labor and qualify to earn a national industry-recognized credential
  • The format allows participants to immediately apply their learning in a clinical setting 
  • Participants earn a wage while learning the skills to be successful in a high-demand career
  • Many participants graduate with a full-time job and little or no debt.


If you are interested in becoming a participant in the next MARAP cohort to begin in January of 2018, complete an application of interest by July 15, 2017. Click here to start your application.
