I am a Certified Nurse Assistant and I am doing online training at home for Medical Assistant. I know it will not certify me but it will give me the skills I ned to know whern working for a medical office. I need to find a place of emplyement in Macon, Georgia for a non certified med. assistant. HELP! My sister in Chjattanooga ,TN, works for a Malfacual Surgical Specialty and she is not a Certified but she has the title of Medical Assistant. Give me ideas on how to go about this even though I am not certifed. I do not plan on sitting in a classroom and having deadlines. I dont like the pressure of a classroom. I would rather learn at my own pace.
