Course Objectives:

As the demand for phlebotomists and monitor technicians grow, PDTS will offer basic concepts of Phlebotomy and EKG. Phlebotomy concepts will range from human anatomy to phlebotomy clinical. Students will be taught how collection and preparation of the blood is done and the techniques to safely handle blood. Students will also learn all the medical tools that are involved with phlebotomy. Students will learn medical terminology, communication skills, lab safety procedures and experience time in an onsite clinical setting allowing them to have hands-on training taking blood draws under direct supervision.

Basic Arrhythmia and EKG will focus on Anatomy and Physiology, Cardiac Electrical System, Cardiac Monitoring and 12-Lead Basics and EKG changes. Lab simulation will be conducted to give students hands-on experience on an in-house simulator and EKG machine.

Upon meeting all requirements for graduation, students will receive a certificate and be able to apply for National Testing. A certificate of completion will not be granted unless fees are paid in its entirety.

Certificate of Completion will include name of student and that the student has successfully completed the specific training program. It will have the name of the program along with the completion hours.
