With projected employment growth of 36 percent in the medical office technology fields, the CTC Office Technology department is excited to help prepare students to enter this industry. Whether your goal is to be knowledgeable in a variety of medical office skills or to focus on a specific skill set like medical coding, billing or medical documentation, an exciting career awaits!

Many online training programs that claim to prepare students for national certification fall short of delivery on that promise. You can be confident that Office Technology's (OT) programs offer instruction from experienced faculty who prepare you for certification examinations and placement in the workforce.  Moreover, for every OT class you take, you receive college credit, which increases the likelihood of course transfer if you decide to further your education.

Degrees and Certificates

This program offers different pathways, and you can choose your final destination. Students may pursue an associate degree or certificate.  It takes as few as six courses to complete our medical office technology certificate programs and 14 courses to complete our medical coding and billing certificate programs. Our certificates of completion are stackable which means they are linked and the completion of each one draws you a semester closer to completion of an associate degree.

  • The Medical Coding and Billing program prepares students for employment as medical coders and/or billers.
  • The Medical Office Technology certificates and Associate of Applied Science degree can be completed entirely online (except for internship) or with a combination of online courses including traditional or blended classroom courses on central campus each semester through open-entry courses (start anytime) or weekend courses in our campus Career and Technology Education (CATE) Center.
