Phlebotomy and EKG Technician Training

The EKG/Phlebotomy Technician program is designed to prepare students to become skilled entry-level healthcare technicians.

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, phlebotomy technicians, and specimen processors.
