Pre-requisites for Program Participation:
Our programs are generally designed for those who have a prior background in healthcare by way of experience, schooling, and/or job training, such as:
Certified Nurse Aide (CNA), Certified Medical Assstant (CMA), Patient Care Technician/Associate/Nurse, (PCT/PCA/NT), Registered, Licensed Practical/Vocational Nurse (RN, LPN, LVN), Medical Doctor (MD), Emergency Medical Tech (EMT), Phlebotomy Tech (PT), IV Tech, Medical Lab Tech/Assistant (MLT/MLA), Medical Office Assistant (MOA), Dialysis Tech (DT), Home Health Aid, Physician Assistant, Physical Therapist, Rehabilitation Specialist, Health Information Technologist, Health Records Specialist, Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (DMS), Dental Hygienist, student of allied health or all medical (pre-nursing, pre-medical) or Natural Science Majors (Biology, Chemistry). In addition, consideration is given for medical work experience and/or schooling that meets certain criteria. You may still meet the Pre-requisites for Program Participation if you are a current or past Healthcare professional, whether or not your profession is listed above. See ‘Non-compliance Standards’ below if you are absolutely certain that you do not meet the Pre-requisites for Program Participation qualification guidelines.
State and Federal Law require that all program participants meet certain educational and practical standards, which can be done by way of Supplementary Compliance for certain qualifying individuals. If you do not fit the above criteria, you may still be eligible to enroll by way of Supplementary Compliance, but will need to be pre-approved by the Education Director BEFORE registering. Supplementary Compliance Standards (SCS) requires additional training materials and supplies to be administered in order to supplement that which is already included with our programs. SCS also involves assurance of certification testing eligibility upon program completion to enable otherwise non-compliant students to test for certification and licensing.
Contact us for further assistance to verify whether or not your current knowledge and skill-set will make this option available to you. Please note that there is a Supplementary Compliance fee that is required in addition to the standard program tuitions found here. Once approved, Supplementary Compliance students can complete the regular registration process located here and are eligible for the same payment plans and scheduling guidelines as all other students.
For example, the regular tuition for Phlebotomy Technician is $999, but for those who do not meet the Pre-requisites for Program Participation above, the cost becomes 1,649 (which includes the Supplementary Compliance Fee of $650.)
