Medical & Healthcare College in Foley, AL
If your goal is to start a new career or advance the one you already have, FORTIS offers both HVAC and a Medical Assisting program in Foley, Alabama. Our medical assistant program can help prepare you for an entry-level career in a variety of healthcare settings. Alternatively, our HVAC program is an option for those who are seeking entry-level employment in the skilled trades working in the heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration field.
According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) job opportunities for medical assistants will grow much faster than the average for all occupations nationally over the next decade. Medical assistants provide hands-on patient care under the direction of doctors and nurses, perform basic lab work, and medical offices run smoothly.
Another career area that is experiencing job opportunity growth is in HVAC. According to the BLS, however, employers are increasingly seeking entry-level technicians who have graduated from a formal training program. This is because environmental systems have become more complex and there is a need to use computer-based diagnostic tools when working with them. Students in the FORTIS Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration (HVACR) program receive both hands-on and classroom training in the installation, maintenance, and repair of HVAC and refrigeration systems.

FORTIS College was a life changing experience for me. I never thought I would graduate from college. I love the staff at FORTIS College and I made a lot of life-long friends during my time here.
The school helped me learn many of the skills. I learned many skills that helped with my externship. I can use my skills more in the medical field. The teachers helped a lot and when I had questions, they were always there. The school is great and I would have anyone go. Best experience of my life.
As far as changing my personal life, I finally got a certificate, completion of something. I’ve got probably over 200 hours of college. I’m master of a lot and graduated from none. But I actually finished the program, got to walk the stage and got a certificate. So it’s actually something that I actually completed.
The degree I received at Fortis College definitely made a difference in my personal life. It allowed me to find a better job…not only a job, a career that I love.
