Extension Program

We are now offering a Certified Patient Care Technician Program and an EKG Monitor Technician Course. These classes are designed for people from all backgrounds of life – from a person with no medical experience to a person who has worked in the medical field but is ready to launch a new career.

The Certified Patient Care Technician provides bedside care and performs procedures such as vital signs, electrocardiography (ECG), phlebotomy (blood draws) and interacts in daily communication with patients, nurses, doctors and patients' families.
