You must be an Express Training Services student to take our NHA exams
Interested in working in a doctor’s office? You should try our Certified Medical Assistant Exam Prep Class. Express Training Services has just added this class and we are very excited to begin.
If you have already taken our phlebotomy course you can apply the money you spent on that class towards the medical assistant class.
If you take the medical assistant class, you can pay for the exam and take both the phlebotomy exam and be certified in both in the same amount of time. Does not include National Certification Exam fee. Call for details.
Classes must have a minimum of 8 students, and are subject to being cancelled if this minimum is not met.
This 245 clock-hour class may be completed over a 12-week period, and is offered nights only. Click on the “schedule” link below for specific dates and times.
This class is offered in the Destin office. Click on the “schedule” for dates and times. Keep checking though; we may offer it at other locations in the future.

How do I enroll?
This is the easiest part of all. Fill out the application form below. If you have a debit or credit card, you can call us at 352-338-1193 or toll-free at 866-346-0660 anytime. If you wish to pay in person, you can drop by any of our offices. A $100 deposit can be provided to hold your spot in the class, with the balance ($2400) due the first day. Be careful though! The $100 is non-refundable and non-transferrable. Please do not pay with a personal check.
There are agencies that may pay your class fees. Click on the “Financial assistance” tab on our web site for a list of some of these agencies.
Arrange for your financial assistance before applying for the program. How you are going to pay for the course will be the first question asked to you when you register.
Express Training Services cannot currently accept federal financial assistance (this would include Pell Grants). There are multiple other places where student loans can be arranged. Express Training is in the process of finding other student loan sources and they will be added as they are found. We do not recommend any loan source over another source. Keep checking the web site to see if any loan sources have been added.
Most people who take this class will arrange for an in-house loan. Here are some different options to pay the $2,500 in tuition:
Option 1: Pay the entire $2,500 at once (our favorite).
Option 2: Put 40% down, which is $1,000, and then make 12 weekly payments of $125.
Option 3: Put 40% down, which is $1,000, and then make 6 bi-weekly payments of $250.
Regardless of which option you choose, all the loan must be repaid before you are allowed to graduate. It is very important to understand that these are “loans” and not grants. They must be repaid regardless of whether the program has been completed. Please be careful when setting these loans up.
So what are you waiting for? Give us a call if you want more information or would like to sign up. Remember, the small class size limits the available seating.
