34 week Diploma Program
“I recently graduated from the Medical Office Assistant program at triOS...extremely happy with the whole experience...easy to balance everything and still maintain good grades. As far as the content, I talked to people who were taking the same program in other schools and
they were all impressed by how much more I was learning at triOS...the staff is excellent-very helpful and encouraging. They do their best to make sure students succeed, and that positive reinforcement brings out the best in us!”
