        Here are some of the most popular online health certificates.

        Medical Office Assistant Certificate

        This basic healthcare certificate will prepare graduates to work in a doctor's office as the receptionist, dealing with patient records or even communicating directly with staff and patients. Although this is not a nursing certificate, graduates might take on tasks like recording blood pressure or heart rates, collecting a patient's medical history or taking down their medical complaints and symptoms.

        If you want to work in a doctor's office and be surrounded by different types of patients throughout the day, then this online certificate in medical office assisting is a great choice. It will take roughly 18 months to complete online.

        Medical Billing or Coding Certificates

        For those who want to work in a medical administrative setting that is a little more behind the scenes, a healthcare certificate in medical billing or medical coding is a smart choice. With this certification, you will be able to take jobs organizing the billing records of patients and finding out how much to charge insurance companies for the various services of doctors and hospitals.

        You might find work in a doctor's office, in a hospital, in a nursing home or even with an insurance company thanks to this year long certification program that can be completed online.

        Occupational Therapy Assistant Certificate

        Occupational therapy assistants are vital to the occupational therapists they assist. Assistants might prepare the room for the therapy session, greet the patient, create plans for the patient to increase flexibility, help stretch the patients prior to an intense session with the therapist or even track their progress over time.

        Since an occupational assistant certificate can be earned online in as little as one year, graduates are able to begin working right away in the field. Salaries are very lucrative in this industry and begin around $31,000 for holders of this occupational assistant certificate.

        Emergency Medical Technician Certificate

        An Emergency Medical Technician, or EMT, is the person who rides in an ambulance or other emergency vehicle and is often the first person at the scene of a crime or an accident. Although a licensing exam is necessary in order to work as an EMT, the best way to prepare for that exam is to complete a program like the emergency medical technician certificate. The first half of this certification program can be completed online, but the second half requires clinical and on the job experience.

        Dental Assistant Certificate

        In the United States, there is a great demand for dental assistants and dental hygienists. The positions offer great pay and benefits, and the requirement to work in most dentistry offices is the one year dental assistant certificate. You will learn how to complete tasks like cleaning teeth, filing patient records and potentially even some lab work. A similar certificate is the dental hygienist program, which takes slightly longer to complete but offers higher salaries for graduates who find work in the field.

        Earning online healthcare certificates can be a fast track to a rewarding position in the healthcare industry. You can complete most health care certificates completely online, though requirements will vary and some may involve an externship to complete the clinical portion of the certification.
