  • Patient Care Technician Certification

    A Patient Care Technician is a very important role in the medical world. They provide hands-on patient care in hospitals, clinics and nursing homes. A PCT is licensed and certified to operate an electrocardiogram machine, in addition to being phlebotomists. Above all, a PCT must be upbeat, personable and sympathetic. This professional demeanor is imperative for this job when working with patients who may be scared, weak or very sick. 

    According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job of a Patient Care Technician is expected to grow 21% by the year 2022. That job growth is much greater than the national average.

    A PCT includes CNA certification in addition to phlebotomy and electrocardiography.

    Total cost - $3,100**  

    Books and certification exam are included.

    ** Cost does not include background check.

    If you are a current CNA, you can take our Phlebetomy/EKG program to receive your PCT certificate. If you are certified in Phlebetomy/EKG, you can take our NY State Certified CNA program to earn your PCT Certification.
