I have been extremely happy with my experience at CHA Learning! The program is set up in a way that allows me to continue to work while doing the schooling. I’ve found the courses to be interesting and all are relevant to my future career. I would highly recommend CHA Learning to anyone looking at furthering their education!!!

HIM Program Graduate

The best part of the program was the practicum experience as I felt that I was really able to apply the information I was learning in my courses to real situations. This helped me to gain a better understanding of the workflow process in the Health Records department.

HIM Program Graduate

My experience with CHA learning and everyone in the HIM program far exceeded my expectations. I learned so much in the two year program and am able to apply so much of this knowledge to my workplace. The best part about this program – I was able to continue working full time while completing the program full time.

HIM Program Graduate

The instructors are knowledgeable and always willing to help which is a huge plus. The online aspect of the course provides flexibility for students who have other commitments and provides a good work/study balance. The practicums were my favourite part of the entire course! I loved the valuable hands-on experience and it’s great for networking!
