Policy & Student Handbook
Students in this program will be prepared to enter the workforce as both EKG and Phlebotomy Technicians. Students will begin with a foundation in medical terminology and will continue with both a clinical and theory-based curriculum. As a Phlebotomy Technician (CPT through the National Healthcareer Association), students will be trained to perform a variety of blood collection methods using proper techniques and precautions. 40 hours of this course will include a focus on preparing students to function as EKG Technicians and take the CET exam through the National Healthcareer Association. This portion of the course will include important practice and background information on anatomy and physiology of the heart, medical disease processes, and electrocardiography. This program involves classroom instruction and clinical experience/externship in a healthcare facility to provide an opportunity for students to gain the skills and knowledge necessary to take professional certification exams.
NOTE: Externship hours will be scheduled during the day and students will be placed as space is available.
Students looking to enroll in the above-listed program must submit an official high school or GED transcript to be reviewed. Team members will grant student placement only after evaluating the transcript and determining that it meets all criteria for admission.
