Students receive clinical hands-on practice in actual healthcare settings, with a mix of classroom and time in the lab. For example, Pharmacy technician labs use actual state-of-the-art equipment; Phlebotomy students receive hands-on training with a 100 hour externship in an approved lab setting; and Outpatient Insurance Coding students use software and coding manuals that are actually used by hospitals and insurance companies for billing and coding procedures, so no matter which certificate path you choose, you will be well prepared to enter the workforce. This program is offered as a Technical Certificate (TC).
NOTE: This program requires that recipients file the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and be eligible for Title IV financial aid. The Workforce Ready Grant is not based on family income.
