INDIANA, Pa. (AP) - Four former students have sued a western Pennsylvania technical school claiming the certified medical assistant course they took wasn’t accredited.

The plaintiffs say that alleged failure by the Indiana County Technology Center means they can’t take a test to be certified by the American Association of Medical Assistants, nor can they now get jobs in that field.

The Indiana Gazette (https://bit.ly/1gttyzs ) reports the students are seeking hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost tuition and other damages, saying they must now get the same training somewhere else to pursue careers as medical assistants.

The school’s executive director, Carol Jean Fry, has declined comment on the lawsuit.

The lawsuit contends the course wasn’t accredited during the 2011-12 school year, when the plaintiffs were enrolled.
