Affordable

Our program tuition is $3,350. We offer flexible payment plans outlined here that enable you to enroll at minimal upfront cost! Our program provides you with the foundational education needed to become a medical assistant without the financial burden.

Safe

We know that the world is a changed place due to the pandemic. It is now more important than ever to practice smart safety measures. Our online program enables you to learn from the safety of your own home while practicing social distancing. Plus, it’s a great time to work on yourself and develop a new skill set!

Convenient

All of us have different circumstances - busy work schedules, children or family members to take care of, etc. Our hybrid medical assistant program allows you to learn throughout the week utilizing various e-learning modules as well as take-home lab kits! Each Saturday, you’ll have a four-hour online session with an instructor to review lectures, labs, and any questions you may have - all from the safety and convenience of your home! Additionally, while we encourage the use of computers for the best educational experience, our programs are designed to be mobile-friendly!

Snap is pleased to announce we offer an optional but strongly recommended, lab and externship seminar at no additional cost to students who complete our 12-week program. Labs take place over the course of two weekends (both Saturday and Sunday, 8 hours per day) at regional training centers. The lab seminar provides students an additional opportunity to further develop the hands-on skills they will use as medical assistants. The 80-hour externship gives students the opportunity to gain first hand experience in a medical office.

Time: Your online classes are held every Saturday from 10a-2p CST.

Your Saturday sessions will consist of an instructor-led lecture accompanied by at-home labs and learning activities. This is the perfect time to ask questions and gain direct insights from our experienced, knowledgeable medical assistant instructors!

You can expect to spend about 5 hours per week on reading, online activities, lab simulations, CCMA practice exams, and quizzes. Your electronic textbook and student portal will provide you with the resources needed to complete the program.
