Introduction

Ashmore Business College and Asheboro Business College, established in 1939, combined in 1984 to become Brookstone College of Business, a technical skills and training school awarding both diplomas and certificates in courses that prepare students for careers in business and medical offices, pharmacies, and other facilities.

Academics

The college has several options for students interested in the business and medical fields. Most programs can be completed in one year or less — sometimes in weeks — which makes it easy students to earn a degree, diploma, or other certification in a short period of time.

Certificate Programs

The Administrative Assisting program helps students develop word and document processing and spreadsheet application skills.

The Computerized Accounting program allows students to learn entry level accounting skills to gain work in an office.

The Medical Administrative Assisting program features studies in medical information processing and software.

Students enrolled in the Nurse Aid track, only available at the Charlotte campus, can study to become an assistant in a health care facility.

The Phlebotomy Technician certificate contains two parts: classroom instruction on anatomy and physiology of the circulatory system; specimen collection; specimen processing and handling; and completion of clinical training.

Diploma Programs

The Pharmacy Technology program has students working alongside licensed pharmacy technicians in a real setting. The program touches on all aspects of the career including: basic anatomy, pharmaceutical calculations and compliance with state and federal pharmaceutical regulations. Students will earn a Pharmacy Technician Diploma upon graduation from the program.

The school also has a Medical Assisting program that will give students the skills necessary to find careers in phlebotomy, hospital ward clerks, medical assisting and chiropractic assisting. Students receive a Medical Assisting Diploma upon completion of the program. Graduates are eligible to take the Certified Medical Assisting examination given by the American Association of Medical Assistants.

The Accounting Systems Technology program at will help students meet their skill level needs in many fields including: corporate accounting and payroll and federal taxation. Students will gain an Accounting Systems Technology Diploma upon completion of the required courses.

Terminology, processes, and procedures for electronic health records in health care facilities are taught in the Medical Office Administrative program.
