Recently, the Medical Assistant (CMA) Program offered through Workforce Solutions at Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) released another student into the workforce. Ten months ago, Miriam Arriaga began her training in the CMA Program, and a mere 4 months later she graduated!
Arriaga “found a job right away” following graduation. Her hard work and effort she provided during her time at LFCC landed her a job with the Free Medical Clinic of the Shenandoah Valley, located in Winchester, Virginia. The rapid job offer from the Free Medical Clinic must be why Arriaga says the classes at LFCC “opens up a lot of doors.”
