Mountain Institute – Moodle
Mountain Institute offers programs in Career and Technical Education (CTE) to students while they concurrently attend their home high school for graduation. Over 2,000 students enroll each year, including students from Ash Fork, Bagdad, Chino Valley, Humboldt, Mayer, Prescott, and Seligman school districts. Mountain Institute also welcomes students who attend local Charter Schools, Home School, or Private Schools.  MI students attended JTED programs at their home schools or at one of our Central Campuses including Yavapai College CTEC. 

Mountain Institute uses Moodle, as an online classroom learning management system to bring extra resources, information, and experience that students will need to have as they continue their education and career paths. Teachers may post quizzes, tests, readings as well as other assignments in Moodle for students to participate in. Be sure to check with your teachers as they may require you to participate in the online portions of their programs located here in Moodle.

To login/out of Moodle please use the login link at the top right of the page. If you don't know your login information please check with your instructor.

If you are having trouble with Moodle please contact the JTED office at 771-0791.

    Ophthalmic technicians are in high demand, and according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics that demand will grow 25% by the year 2024. Many practices do still offer on-the-job training, however sub-specialty clinics (such as retina surgeons) often prefer, or require, either a Medical Assistant or ophthalmic certification of some kind prior to employment. Training opportunities outside of working in an ophthalmology practice are few and far between in Arizona. With this in mind, M&M Eye Institute seeks to offer a JTED certification pathway for students interested in entering a field of medicine during a period of exponential growth. The certification we are proposing through the Joint Commission on Allied Health Personnel in Ophthalmology (JCAHPO) is nationally recognized in all fields of ophthalmology and offers a national median salary of $37,329. This figure allows for room to grow as it is the stepping stone to further certification and experience which offers higher salary caps.

    During this course we will build a foundation of knowledge and skills to prepare students to enter the medical profession of medical assisting. Students will learn a wide array of theory and applications to become a valuable asset to the health care industry. Concepts will include: physiology of ↓ and ↑ ; BP, pulse, respirations, temperature, pulse ox, and anthropometric measurements. We will take a more in-depth look at lab equipment and tools, EKGs, phlebotomy principles, CLIA waived tests, pharmacology, etc., along with their use and the interpretations of their results. We will continue building medical terminology vocabulary and office procedures.

    More Medical Assistants are employed by physicians than any other allied health professional. This course culminates in the opportunity to test for the CCMA (Certified Clinical Medical Assistant certification).

    During this course we will be investigating: health care careers, health care systems, legal and ethical issues, medical math, leadership, organization of the human body, growth and development, body mechanics, infection control, blood borne pathogens, environmental safety, lifestyle management, professionalism, lifelong learning, the patient as an individual, physical assessments, HIPAA, emergency procedures, computer technology, documentation, communication, controlling health care costs, performance improvement and customer service, job leads, resume building, interviewing skills, portfolio, job applications, successful employment strategies, mental health, pathologies, nutrition, body systems and medical terminology related to all categories listed. We will also learn basic-basic: pharmacology and medication administration, EKG, x-ray, phlebotomy essentials and lab result interpretation, patient education CPR/AED/1st Aid (culminating in CPR/AED/1st Aid certification for the professional rescuer), vital signs and interpretation, and basic office procedures for a medical office. Any portion of this summary may be subject to change at the instructor's discretion.
