Career Step, a leading online healthcare education company, has been named as one of the fastest growing companies in the state for the second consecutive year by Utah Business magazine’s Fast 50 awards program.
“Career Step has enjoyed continued success over the last year, and we’re very pleased with the Company’s recognition in the Utah Fast 50 for the second year in a row,” said John Hiatt, Career Step CFO. “Utah has a very diverse economy, and, even with our national audience, it’s valuable to see how we compare with other strong, local companies.”
Career Step offers online training programs in Medical Transcription and Medical Coding and Billing, and also recently launched a Pharmacy Technician training program. The growth of the healthcare industry has created incredible demand for well-trained professionals, and the Career Step programs provide the opportunity for individuals to quickly gain all of the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in a new healthcare career. The Career Step programs focus on helping students train for a new career in less than a year.
The Fast 50 awards program is based on companies’ revenue growth over the previous five years. This year’s competition considered revenue growth from 2005 through 2009. All of the companies honored will be featured in the September 2010 edition of Utah Business magazine.
