MCCC to hold information sessions to help Antonelli students

November 30, 2017, Pottstown, PA—To assist Antonelli Medical & Professional Institute (AMPI) students, Montgomery County Community College (MCCC) is holding two special information sessions for students to learn about the programs and opportunities available at MCCC.

Information sessions at MCCC will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 6, from 1 to 2 p.m. and Wednesday, Dec. 13, from 4 to 5 p.m. Both sessions will be held in the Health Careers Suite, Room 121, West Campus, 101 College Drive, in Pottstown.

AMPI, a private technical school located in Pottstown, announced Wednesday it will be closing its doors indefinitely as of the end of December 2017.

MCCC offers accredited Medical Assisting and Medical Office Assistant programs that could align with programs offered by AMPI. To earn credits for courses they took at AMPI, students will be able to take challenge exams or undergo prior learning assessment.

MCCC also offers several career training programs in health care, including Pharmacy Technician, Massage Therapy and Medical Billing Specialist, as well as degree and certificate programs in the health sciences, including Dental Hygiene, Health and Fitness Professional, Medical Laboratory Technician, Nursing, Physical Therapist Assistant, Radiography, Surgical Technology, Medical Coding, Phlebotomy Technician, Personal Training, Exercise Science and Wellness and Public Health.

If you are unable to attend any of these sessions, but would like to be contacted about our programs, request more information online.

Representatives from MCCC’s academic advising, financial aid and admissions departments will be available to answer questions and provide direction.
