Laryn Rush was one of more than a hundred people who turned out for our Spring Career Training Expo, and she may be the luckiest. The Dallas resident picked up a free iPad mini thanks to a prize drawing held during the event. The prize might come in handy later this year in her studies as she begins taking our Medical Office Assistant course.
For Laryn, it wasn’t the iPad mini that was the biggest takeaway from the evening. She said it was helpful to learn what the MOA course covers and what she can do after she graduates.
“I learned that even after I’m certified for MOA I can always continue my education with Medical Billing & Coding or Medical Assisting,” she said. “The event was very beneficial to me.”
Karen Smith, manager of strategic initiatives, congratulated Laryn on winning. Karen said the iPad mini giveaway is just one of the freebies Expo attendees can enjoy.
“We also have giveaways at our social media table, refreshments, student gift packs for those who register that night and free career coaching sessions,” she said. “Plus, we have information on financial aid. We accept VA Education Benefits, Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act funding, and scholarships, which just opened this April.”
Attendees also receive a discount coupon they can use toward registration. Laryn has already used hers for the MOA Certificate, which begins in August.
