Health Care Classes

Professional development for healthcare professionals is commonly offered as day-long conferences or short seminars. Industry experts provide information on current issues or topics relevant for specific groups within healthcare, such as dental assistants, massage therapists, medical assistants, nurses, social workers and more. Northwood Tech works closely with accrediting associations to approve courses for industry-specific CEU hours.

About the Courses

Many healthcare professionals are required to have continuing education hours (CEU's) documented to maintain or renew their license or certification. Professional development training hours are offered in a variety of ways.

Healthcare Professional Development Offerings:

  • Advanced training through American Heart Association: Offered through our Emergency Medical Services department, Northwood Tech offers training and refreshers in: CPR Health Care Provider-AHA (also known as Basic Life Support-BLS), Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), and Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition and Stabilization (PEARS).
  • Caregivers and Social Workers: Two Caregiver Conferences, co-sponsored by the regional ADRC offices, are offered at Northwood Tech campuses and via livestream. Other professional development workshops include CEU hours.
  • Medical Assistant: Conferences held via livestream/Zoom. These events are designed to enhance the learning of CMA's working in area health facilities by providing new information on current trends in healthcare. CEU's available through AAMA.
  • Other Healthcare Professional Development: Due to the pandemic, many in person offerings have been paused, including dental assistant, therapeutic massage and reiki. Please contact to inquire about specific content areas.
