We Train Paralegals In Just 5 Short Months!

How do I become a Paralegal in Arizona?

Paralegal in Arizona

Arizona does not have any education or certification requirements to work as a Paralegal.  Traditionally, Paralegal Education options include attending a two-year Paralegal Program through a trade school or community college or attending a 6-month Certificate Program after obtaining a bachelor’s degree.

However, Altrain Medical and Dental Assisting Academy has created another option!  Altrain is now offering a 5-month Legal Assistant/Paralegal Program that awards a Certificate of Completion in Legal Assisting.  The program does not have any prerequisites other than a basic entrance exam. (Note: The terms “legal assistant” and “paralegal” are used interchangeably, much like the terms attorney and lawyer.)

Altrain Medical and Dental Assisting Academy has been in business since 2005 and is licensed by the Arizona Department of Private Postsecondary Education.  Altrain is well known throughout the dental community for training excellent certified Dental Assistant! In 2020, Altrain expanded and added Medical Assistant Programs that boast a 100% Graduation Rate, a 100% Exam Pass Rate and a 100% Job Placement Rate.  They have now done it again and our offering a Paralegal Program that is the first of its kind in Arizona.  Altrain’s philosophy includes hands-on training, exam preparation and job placement services.  They eliminate the fluff from long programs and focus the actual requirements to perform your job duties and place you in a career fast! You are trained on the equipment that you will actually use and see in a office or law firm.

The Legal Assistant / Paralegal Program teaches the skills that are really needed to perform the job duties of a Paralegal. The program also prepares students to take and pass the NALA Paralegal Association Certified Paralegal Exam and become a Certified Paralegal.

Altrain Medical and Dental Assisting Academy has partnered with Legal Docs, LLC, which is an Arizona Legal Document Preparer Service.  This allows students to obtain real life hands-on experience for real clients. Altrain’s curriculum also includes training on multiple legal software systems including: document drafting software, practice management software, timekeeping software and LexisNexis training.  This type of training and opportunity to practice performing the skills of a Paralegal won’t be found elsewhere!
