Career Quest Learning Centers is pleased to announce the addition of three new programs. If you want a career, and not just a job, check out the Associate Degree of Applied Science in Paralegal Studies, or our training programs for Legal Secretaries and Ophthalmic Assistants. Here’s what our new programs are all about:


You could earn your Associate Degree of Applied Science in Paralegal Studies in as little as 15 months. We’ll teach you the skills you need to become an important member of a legal team. You’ll learn all about the law and legal terminology and proper evidence gathering and dispute resolution. We’ll teach you the fundamentals of criminal, business, contract, tort and family law. We’ll help you hone your critical thinking and research skills and teach you effective written and oral communication for the legal profession. You’ll even have the opportunity to work in an actual legal setting through our externship program.

With training from Career Quest, you might become a paralegal, paralegal specialist, law clerk, legal assistant, legal analyst, magistrate assistant, judicial administrative assistant, or other legal support professional.

Legal Secretary

If you think a career in law is right for you but you’re not quite ready to pursue a degree, our Legal Secretary Program might be the perfect solution. We’ll teach you basic legal terminology and the fundamentals of criminal, business, contract and family law. You’ll also learn what makes a good legal office run smoothly, including the kinds of office computer programs that will help you do the best job you can. And you’ll go on an externship in a real legal office so you’ll be able to bring knowledge and experience to your future employer.

Our program can prepare you to become a legal secretary or other legal professional such as an executive legal secretary, legal assistant, legal administrative secretary, litigation assistant, magistrate assistant and more.

Ophthalmic Assistant

If you see yourself more clearly in the medical field, our Ophthalmic Assistant program might be worth a look! We can train you to become an Ophthalmic Assistant in as little as 8 months!  We’ll teach you all you need to know about the eye to work in this rewarding profession. You’ll learn ocular anatomy, terminology, pathology, and pharmacology. You’ll learn how to image and measure the human eye and how to conduct basic eye exams. We’ll also help you navigate the medical ethics, terminology, legal and regulatory issues you’ll need to be aware of to find success in the healthcare industry.

Some of the careers that could be available to you upon completion of your program include ophthalmic assistant, dispensing technician and optical front office professional.
