I like our instructor’s teaching methods, it allows us to actually retain everything. Also, all of the hands-on activities we do in the lab are a lot of fun and help us to become more comfortable. Our instructor and classmates have definitely made the class very enjoyable! I love what I am going for, and glad I finally found something that sparked my interest. I also really love how our class is small, giving us more time for discussions and anything we need. We’ve become a happy little dental family.

YCST Dental Assistant Program
“The medical assisting program at YCST is great! The classes for the program are exactly what we need to take and don’t involve ones that we don’t need. I loved how short and quick the program went - it was less than a year to get certified as a clinical medical assistant. The best thing about the program is the teachers. They teach you in a way that is easy for you to understand and they truly care about you!”

"My experience with the Adult & Continuing Education Center at York County School of Technology has been a blessing!! I am a mother of five children so it has been intense for me to study and focus as much as I would like to. Thanks to my instructors and the school staff involved with the Adult Education Program, they have helped guide me through to successful completion of my program. This program has a lot of information and lots of hands on skills that will have you completely comfortable and prepared to enhance yourself in the field as an Certified Clinical Medical Assistant. Also, you complete your program within a fashionable time. Thanks to the Adult & Continuing Education Center for all the support and encouragement I’ve gained while attending your program."
