BATON ROUGE, La., July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Preparing for hostage taking or rushing out to manage cleanup efforts in hurricane-ravaged areas. Assisting in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac and vascular conditions. Or having a job in which one is practically required to live at the gym and work out.
The 21st Century's high-demand careers are both varied and interesting. . .many of them coming with appealing salaries as well. Today's MedVance Institute, a leading healthcare career training provider, has introduced three courses at select campuses that train students for new career paths forecast to be among the nation's fastest-growing professions.
The programs include: Cardiovascular Technology, Emergency Management Specialist and Personal Training. Each career path offers solid earning potential.
"The demand for practitioners in these fields has grown significantly in just the past year," said MedVance Institute Chairman, CEO and President John Hopkins. "Following our mission to prepare candidates for shortages in healthcare and its allied fields, we developed these programs to fill the increasing need for trained specialists in these areas."
The cardiovascular technology program initially will be offered at MedVance's Stuart, Fla., campus, preparing students to assist in diagnosing and treating problems related to the body's cardiac and vascular systems. Following approvals by regulatory agencies, CT courses are expected to begin in fall 2009 at campuses in Miami, Palm Springs and Nashville.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the field of cardiovascular technologists and technicians is projected to increase by 26 percent through 2016.
The emergency management specialist program initially will be offered at the Baton Rouge, La., campus. Graduates will coordinate disaster response activities, provide disaster preparedness training, and prepare procedures for natural, wartime, and technological disasters or hostage situations. Ideal for military veterans, the new eight-and-a-half-month program will teach students how to manage emergencies, promote public health and safety, and provide disaster preparedness training. The EM program will begin at the Stuart, Fla. campus in fall 2009.
The BLS projects the emergency management field will continue to grow due to increased demand for coordinating disaster response, preparing emergency plans, and removing hazardous materials from buildings and facilities.
The personal training program will be available at the Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Palm Springs campuses in Florida, as well as Nashville. The eight-and-a-half month program will teach students to work one-on-one with clients in a gym or their home, assessing each client's level of physical fitness and improving their exercise techniques. The course culminates with a week-long externship boot camp in Las Vegas featuring well-known bodybuilders such as Jay Cutler, Jen Hendershott, Tommy Boyer-Kendrick and others.
With nearly one in three Americans overweight, the BLS and American Council on Exercise expect the fitness field, including personal trainers, to increase 27 percent by 2016 and generate commensurate income potential.
MedVance Institute will begin enrolling students for the new courses in fall 2009 at select campuses. Upon graduating, students are eligible to sit for certification exams, if required.
