Phlebotomy and EKG Technician Training Program Details
The EKG/Phlebotomy Technician program is designed to prepare students to become skilled entry-level healthcare technicians. Their primary responsibilities will involve drawing blood and/or performing EKG tests, taking vital signs, monitoring EKG machines, and preparing EKG study reports. The program will focus on teaching students the practical skills necessary to start a career in health care.
Upon completion of the program graduates will be able to seek employment as electrocardiography technicians and phlebotomy technicians. As an entry-level health care technician, they will work closely with doctors, nurses, and other medical personnel. Their educational background and specialized focus will allow them to function well in the health care field.
Certified EKG technicians and phlebotomy technicians are primarily employed in hospitals, doctors’ offices, and diagnostic laboratories. Similar to other careers in the healthcare field, job opportunities are expected to grow over the next decade.
Certification / Registry Exam Eligibility
EKG/Phlebotomy graduates will be eligible to take certification exams offered by the National Healthcareer Association (NHA) and the National Center for Competency Testing (NCCT).
Eligibility requirements for the EKG and phlebotomy certifications are solely determined by NHA and NCCT, and are subject to change at any time. NHA and NCCT are independent organizations. AIMS does not guarantee certification/registry exam eligibility.
