"Central Coast College gave me skills like how to communicate with patients, do patient charting, lab work, how to draw blood, how to use a computer in a medical environment... I got a little bit of everything from Central Coast College. When I got out into the working environment, I just took everything they taught me and applied it and it worked out great."
