No Experience Necessary
Question by nina: Which medical certificate should I get?
I am 31 years old and 9 classes away from getting my BA in Criminal Justice, but keep failing statistics, which is a requirement. I don’t want to keep wasting time and money on this class. I just want to start working already! People keep saying it is easy to get a job in the medical field, even with just a certificate and there are a lot of people with 4 year social science degrees who can’t find work. Would I be better off getting a certificate in the medical field that would take about nine months to obtain.
Which certificate is more in demand and will I likely be able to find a well paying job faster in the Maryland/DC area?
Phlebotomy Technician (drawing blood)
Or another area of study I haven’t listed.
Or are certificates a waste of time and money?

There is no way that you can’t pass the class if you put in the effort – do you work with a tutor? How often? Do you meet with the professor outside of class? Do you do Khan Academy course on the subject matter? Do you go to study sessions with fellow students? Unless you have attempted to do every possible thing to pass the course, then you are wasting more time and effort, if you drop out now.
