ICATAP is a critical workforce development program designed to address healthcare staffing shortages in rural and remote areas. The ICATAP program can be tailored specifically to individual rural healthcare settings. Rural areas often face challenges in recruiting and retaining healthcare professionals, making it crucial to support individuals who are already part of the community. This proven solution brings quality immersive education to local health care by facilitating the development of individuals invested in the community and thereby increasing retention of skilled staffing.

ICATAP is now registered with the Minnesota Office of Higher Education!!

Apprentice Success Stories

“Who knew I would be going back to school after the age of 50. The ICATAP program is amazing and I love being a certified CCMA.”


"It's been great to do on the job training while getting paid for my time and not have to attend classes in person while juggling both. I would recommend the program highly to anyone interested in this apprenticeship."


The program is fantastic!  I was ready for a new challenge and ICATAP gave me that opportunity. (getting paid while going to school didn’t hurt either 😉)


The classes and on the job training are so immersive and engaging, you learn quickly.


I am thrilled to be a medical assistant due to ICATAP training and recommend it to anyone wanting to get into the medical field.
