The mission of Aspire Medical Training Academy is to provide the highest level of excellence in healthcare training to our students through a constant display of professionalism, compassion and pride in the health care profession. We will also be an inspiration to everyone in the healthcare profession to strive for excellence.
Aspire Medical Training Academy, formerly God’s Way Project Excel was founded in May 2011 by Lisa Trusclair with a vision of establishing a Certified Nursing Assistant Programs to offer professional improvement for employeed staff. The staff was engaged in providing care for elderly persons and persons with disabilities. We felt this would be a motivating factor for them personally as well as benefit the vision of the company as a whole.
However, throughout the years of working in the health care field with nurses and direct care staff, there has been a phenomenal need as well as request for training which lead to certification for many people. Consequently, our focus shifted to providing quality training to those with a desire to make a unique impact on the health care profession. We also wanted to increase the number of programs offered. This led to the addition of the Phlebotomy Certification Training and Medical Billing and Coding.
In December 2015, Kimberly Clark was offered the opportunity to assume ownership of God’s Way Project Excel and grow the vision of the institution and so Aspire Medical Training Academy was formed.
We believe that providing health care is a growing industry that requires compassionate, well-trained and motivated individuals in order to continue to thrive. It involves addressing the physical, psychological, and emotional needs of individuals. We believe in the value of each person as an individual first, respecting the individual and their rights, and always striving to assist them in maintaining their personal dignity.
We are also service-oriented. We considerate an honor and privilege to provide a service to meet the educational needs of our students and inspire each student to continue to grow and mature as a health care professional. We also are honored to provide exceptional health care services to individuals we have the opportunity to serve in the community and clinical setting. We strive to model excellence in health care, excellence in education and excellence in life in all of our programs. Our faculty and staff will practice with respect, dignity and compassion to and for the people we will serve to make a difference in their lives.
