Healthcare, Medical, & Skilled Trades

If your goal is to start a new career or advance enhance the one you already have, FORTIS offers both HVAC and medical programs 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.

Medical Assisting:

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.

HVAC:

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 HVAC program receive both hands-on and classroom training in the installation, maintenance, and repair of HVAC and refrigeration systems.

Continuing Education:

If you are already working in the healthcare field but want to expand your skill set, consider our continuing education program in phlebotomy. Students receive both classroom and clinical training in collecting and handling blood samples. After completing the course, students may be prepared to register for the International Academy of Phlebotomy Sciences, Inc. certification exam, “Certified Phlebotomy Technician, CPT. “

    It’s such a big accomplishment especially because my parents didn’t think I’d make it this far but they always rooted me on 100%. And I made it. I did. I was very happy.

    The challenge of managing a home, raising a family and doing all that homework and classroom time was a lot to do but I adjusted as needed and got through. I feel great about my achievement and am so glad I completed.

    The most influential people in my life have been the Fortis instructors, of course. They’ve always been around from the beginning to the end, for ups and downs, just for everything; and, of course, my family, my daughter.
