"I was working in a field that was going nowhere, so I began training for medical and dental assisting. I can't even tell you how much my life has changed. I got my job in a podiatrist's office before I was even done with the course. I never would have gotten that job without these courses, and for the first time in a long time I can honestly say that I love my job."
- Heidi Tennings, Medical Office Assisting, Career Diploma
"Once I made the decision to pursue a Paralegal Studies career and enrolled with Ashworth College, I immediately felt I'd found the right career. It was hard working full time managing a restaurant and studying at night, but I finished and learned so much. Now I have a wonderful job in a worker's compensation firm making much more money than I did in the restaurant business. Now I'm using my brain rather than punishing my body as I did before."
- Amy Kilgore, Paralegal Studies, Career Diploma
"I am now licensed in home day care. I enjoy my work very much. The day goes by fast, and we have fun with learning activities, crafts and reading time.

- Karen Louture, Child Day Care, Career Diploma
