Fairfield, NJ (PRWEB) November 16, 2011
Pearson, the world’s leading learning company, and Condensed Curriculum International (CCI) announce the launch of HealthEd Today, a new program designed to increase access to workforce training in allied health. HealthEd Today technician programs include careers in Pharmacy, Phlebotomy, EKG, Billing and Coding and Medical Administrative Assistant. The program is offered fully online via the Pearson LearningStudio platform.
CCI provides innovative allied health education and training program solutions to more than 15,000 students at colleges, universities and medical centers nationwide. HealthEd Today, the first online program to be offered by CCI, was created to reach more students in response to the growing demand for certified health professionals by hospitals, long term care facilities and other health care organizations.
Pearson currently provides custom textbooks for CCI programs, and will provide both customized curriculum and textbooks for the HealthEd Today program.
“No other company has the depth of knowledge, resources and experience that we found in Pearson,” said Andy Ruzika, Director, CCI. “Our partners’ growth is often limited by a lack of classroom space and the inability to service a growing number of students interested in an on-demand e-learning option. By providing both online and classroom-based training options, we will be able to help our partners meet the needs of more students using the quality teaching materials and curriculum design services provided to us by Pearson.”
“The health care industry is projected to add millions of new jobs in the coming years, and Pearson is well-positioned to help meet the demand for comprehensive, workforce training,” said Don Kilburn, CEO of Pearson Learning Solutions. “Our expanded relationship with CCI, one of the country’s largest providers of health training programs, offers the flexible, convenient learning that many students need while providing prospective employers with a highly trained pool of health care candidates.”
