West Dundee's Mario Moore Receives $1,000 Scholarship to CSI Elgin

ELGIN, IL (May 21, 2012) – Mario Moore, a West Dundee resident and medical assisting student at the Elgin campus of the Computer Systems Institute, recently received a $1,000 Hopes and Dreams Scholarship from the school that will be applied directly to his tuition. The scholarship is designed for adult students who score in the top 10 percentile on a scholarship test.

Moore, a 32-year-old father of four, became a certified personal trainer in 2010. He enrolled in CSI's medical assisting program in 2011 at a cousin's recommendation to advance his ability to help others live healthier lives.

"My goal is to own my own fitness facility, and with the education I have been able to attain in the CSI program, I am closer to that dream," Moore said.

With six campuses in the Chicago metropolitan area, CSI specializes in eight-month, fast-track career training programs in healthcare, information technology and business administration. The programs prepare students for careers ranging from medical assisting and medical billing/coding to employment as a computer technician, help desk support specialist, network support technician, office manager, accounting clerk and more.

In addition to scholarships, support services include free GED preparation classes for students without a high school diploma, stipends for academic performance, no-charge retakes of failed classes, resume development assistance, and payment for certification exams that aid in job placement after graduation – including CompTIA A+, Microsoft MCITP, Microsoft MCTS, National Healthcareer Association, American Medical Technologist, and Microsoft Office Specialist and Customer Service.

CSI is accredited by the North Central Association, licensed by the Illinois State Board of Education, and approved by the Illinois Board of Higher Education. It is also a Microsoft IT Academy and approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs to accept the GI bill.

The Elgin CSI campus can be reached at 847-400-0065. More information about CSI programs and the school's five other Chicago-area campuses is available at www.csinow.edu.
