LWC and Ochsner Health System have partnered to expand the successful Ochsner Medical Assistant Training Program to the parishes of St. John, St. James and St. Charles through funding provided by the River Parishes Workforce Development Board and the LWC. This tuition-free Medical Assistant training and development program is targeted towards unemployed and underemployed individuals within the River Parishes. Launched in New Orleans in 2013, the four-month program features accelerated classroom, clinical and on-the-job training and addresses both the need for certified Medical Assistants and the need for additional career pathways. The training also allows students to be certified in CPR.
