LIVONIA—MedCerts, a provider of online healthcare and IT certification training, has named Craig Sprinkle as its new chief executive officer.
Sprinkle assumed the role from former CEO Jason Aubrey Nov. 7 in a planned transition. He joined MedCerts in 2018 in a combined role of CFO and COO, and has served as SFO since 2020.
Aubrey and Sprinkle both joined MedCerts in 2018 to lead an increased focus on growing the company’s catalog of training programs to be more accessible to a broader, more diverse student population, while also providing students more employment options and the opportunity to stack certifications or pursue degrees through transferable college credits.
“I am honored to continue the important work we’re doing at MedCerts, as we have a tremendous opportunity to build on the outstanding work Jason did to keep employers and job skills at the center of everything we do,” Sprinkle said. “The urgency around upskilling talent and recruiting and retaining skilled teams, especially in medical and health fields, is ever-present for us and I look forward to continuing to serve as a reliable partner for job-seekers, trainees, and employer partners.”
In his time as CFO at MedCerts, Sprinkle oversaw more than a fourfold increase in enrollments and revenue while also expanding margins and overall profitability, expansion of the training catalog to include over 50 programs, and heightened focus on critical student outcomes. He also guided MedCerts to consistent placement on the Inc. 5000 list of Fastest Growing Private Companies prior to its acquisition by Stride.
Prior to joining MedCerts, Sprinkle served several successful ventures as CFO and has over 20 years of business experience. In 2012, he was named “CFO of the Year” by Crain’s Detroit Business.
Founded in 2009, MedCerts has helped more than 50,000 students gain credentials and start new careers in the in-demand fields of healthcare and IT. Using David E. Merrill’s 12 elements of e-learning, MedCerts has developed more than 50 immersive online national certification training programs, including allied health exam certification pass rates of 88 percent, well-above average among other education and training providers. MedCerts also has a robust workforce development division, connecting more than 1,000 healthcare organization partners with MedCerts’s growing pool of trained and credentialed talent, helping close nationwide critical staffing and care shortages.
