What is the career progression for a Care Coordinator?

Earning a certificate in the Care Coordinator Program is a great way to advance your career.  The coursework is transferable for academic credit if you are interested in pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Health Services Coordination in the future. The certificate also provides flexible upskilling opportunities for existing Medical Assistants and Licensed Vocational Nurse/Licensed Practical Nurses.

Will I need a computer and internet access to take the program?

Yes, all students will need regular access to a computer and high-speed internet. Your computer will need at least a 2GHz processor or faster, 4 GB RAM or more, built-in or external speakers, USB 2.0 port or adaptor, a webcam supported operating system, Windows 7 or higher, or MacOS Sierra 10.12 or higher.

Will I need to pass a drug test?

You should expect that our educational partners will require you to pass a drug test before starting school or sometime during your educational journey, and that all employers will require you to pass a drug test before starting work.

Will I have support during the program?

For the Pandemic Readiness courses, you will have access to technical support from Canvas if you have trouble with the learning management system.  If you are having trouble logging in please contact help@futurohealth.org.  Due to the short length of the course, there will be no student success coach assigned to you.

For all other Programs Futuro Health has success coaches available to guide you along your educational journey, including helping you select your career pathway and transition to work. Learn More.

What is the role of SEIU-UHW?

Service Employees International Union-United Healthcare Workers West (SEIU-UHW) is doing outreach to scout and recruit candidates for Futuro Health. In addition, as you progress through your educational journey, you may be matched for mentorship with a SEIU-UHW member — someone who is already employed in the allied health field and can help you navigate your career.  This is a unique benefit that sets Futuro Health apart and is intended to help you grown your professional network of employment opportunities.
