The minimum credentials are set forth by the OCTS, and they state that all members of the teaching faculty should have the minimum qualifications: 1. A two-or four-year degree from an institution, recognized by the United States Department of Education or national accrediting body, in the major area they are designed to teach; or 2. Practical experience of not less than two years in the major area they are assigned to teach and professional licensure or industry-recognized certification in the field; and 3. Obtain knowledge of the educational literature in the field, or the methods and techniques of handling industrial, commercial, and occupational/vocational training.

The program is six months long with a 200-hour externship component to reinforce dental assisting skills taught in the classroom. Students will be introduced to the material and then in most cases given an opportunity to practice their skills in the classroom before going into the field. They will complete a CPR course with a certification that is good for two years as well. Upon completion of the course, students will receive a diploma instead of a certificate because it can get easily confused with them being Certified Dental Assistants, which requires additional testing and/or credentials. Certificate of Completion was selected because there was no option to put Diploma, but the student's graduating credential will be a Diploma.

High School Diploma or Equivalent

Evolution Training Academy must have a copy of the student's official transcript from High School or the Equivalent in order for the student to enroll.

We will have admission for a new class every month.
