About UpSkillNIMAA

How does it work?

UpSkillMA provides practicing Medical Assistants with next level training and expertise to excel in high-performing Primary Care teams. Participants learn at their own pace through an online platform that is user friendly, secure and HIPAA Compliant. Participants can be enrolled in scheduled cohorts with an instructor (click here for 2021 dates) or the course can be taken on-demand for more flexibility. 

There are currently five courses offered by UpSkillMA that can be taken separately or in a recommended sequence. Participants earn a certificate of completion by demonstrating mastery of each course’s key objectives. Coursework includes quizzes, video lessons and written material developed by experts in the field.  All courses have an assigned instructor that is a subject matter expert who engages participants in critical thinking throughout the course.  Participants also engage with their peers who are participating in the course at the same time as them.
