“This partnership is a perfect example of synergy,” said Sandy Mead, National Director of Workforce Development at MedCerts. “We give students the ability to reskill for critical industry positions, and Equus will help connect our students with the employers most in need of these skills.”
Acquired by Stride, Inc. in 2020, MedCerts engages students in online, hands-on career training courses in healthcare, medical, and IT fields to prepare for over twenty national certifications. More than 1,000 organizations have hired MedCerts students or offer training and employment opportunities for students and employees, including CVS Pharmacy, Walmart, and the American Red Cross.
“Equus is uniquely positioned to connect career seekers to training and employment opportunities. When students’ skills can be matched to strategic apprenticeships and employment opportunities, it creates a win-win scenario for all parties,” said Michelle Day, National Workforce Solutions Director at Equus. “We’re very excited to be working with MedCerts to help our business partners meet their skills needs and streamline the employment process.”
