What is your “system of training”?

CALC, Institute of Technology offers individualized instruction for office administration and information technology applications. All textbooks and support materials are self-guided so that students can progress at their own pace. Instructors are always available to assist students as they work through “hands-on” projects and ensure that students master each goal and objective sequentially throughout the training. This methodology ensures that students develop the required knowledge and skills necessary before progressing to higher levels in the course.

Medical office applications are delivered in an instructor-led format utilizing structured lesson plans for lecture and practical exercises. The instructor delivers lecture at each session and provides hands-on material for the student to gain knowledge of current work force job duties. The instructor is available at all times to assist students as they work through practical experience exercises. The practical experience sessions include working with industry medical coding reference books, office and claims processing forms.
