A career in health care
The aging of the population and the number of people living longer with health challenges means a high demand for trained health care personnel. We have close ties to the health care industry and a very high job placement rate among our graduates.



At a routine doctor’s appointment I found that my doctor’s secretary was going on maternity leave. She suggested I apply for her job. I was a little worried that I had no training so quickly found the Medical Secretary program at LBP Continuing Education and have never looked back.



As a secretary for a used car dealership I was looking for another career challenge. The teachers are passionate about their field and will have you up and running this fast paced and changing field in no time at all.
