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 taking patient vital signs, monitoring EKG machines, preparing EKG study reports, and drawing blood. 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/Phlebotomy Technicians are employed in hospitals, private doctors’ offices, and pathology labs that are accredited by the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). Similar to other careers in health care, job opportunities for phlebotomists 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.
