Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education and corporate training, is pleased to announce a new partnership with the University of Utah. The University of Utah will be offering Career Step online training programs to its community, and the new programs will prepare students for careers in the healthcare, technology and administration industries.
“We are excited to expand our community offerings by teaming up with Career Step,” said Anne O’Brien, Assistant Dean of Continuing Education Programs at the University of Utah. “We are particularly excited about the opportunities these online training programs will provide to military families looking to improve their employment opportunities and healthcare organizations that need training for their employees. We are pleased to join forces with Career Step to help Utahans gain the skills they need for professional success.”
The University of Utah’s Continuing Education Department will be offering the following career training programs: Medical Transcription Editing, Professional Medical Coding and Billing, Medical Administrative Assistant with EHR and Pharmacy Technician.

Healthcare is an increasingly important component to Utah’s economy as well as the overall national economy. In fact, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that healthcare alone is expected to generate 2.8 million new jobs between 2012 and 2022. This growth will enable individuals training for careers in healthcare to more easily secure rewarding employment both in and outside of the Beehive state.
“The value of an education cannot be underestimated,” said Ryan Ewer, Career Step Vice President of Academic Partnerships. “This partnership with the University of Utah will make it possible for more people in Utah to get high quality, online training that will prepare them for professional success. Together, the University of Utah and Career Step, can accomplish our common goal of helping individuals in our community get the training necessary for rewarding careers.”
The job-focused training in these growing career fields makes these programs an excellent choice for those looking to train relatively quickly for a new career. The programs incorporate feedback from employers, with many of the courses preparing students to earn third-party certifications. Specific industry associations have also evaluated the courses, and students receive extensive graduate support to help turn their educations into jobs.
