What are Students Saying About CHCP Austin?
Valerie R., CHCP Austin
I am a recent graduate from CHCP’s LMRT program. From my information session to my graduation day CHCP has set me up for success. They made the enrollment process extremely easy and answered any questions that I had. The class sizes are small, which makes it easy to follow along, learn and allows for a lot of lab time to put your practical skills to use. This also gives the amazing instructors more one on one time with students who may be needing extra help. CHCP sets you up on an externship that allows you to get a ton of experience in the field. After graduation and receiving my temp license the career services center sent out my resume (which I’d never known of another school doing) and helped me land my current job taking x-rays at a sports medicine clinic. Thank you CHCP for helping me find and kickstarting my career!
