After successful completion of each program, students will receive a Diploma of completion in their respective programs and be able to sit for a national certification through the National Healthcareer Association (NHA).

In addition to NHA career certifications, all students are offered an opportunity to be certified by the American Red Cross in Blood-Borne Pathogen Training during orientation, before the first day of class. Students are encouraged to attend a program orientation and blood borne pathogens training session prior to the beginning of their program. The cost of this orientation and American Red Cross training session is included in the cost of the student’s registration fee.
Students enrolled in the Patient Care Technician or Electrocardiogram Technician Programs are required to attend the American Red Cross Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers (CPR) course. This training class is during scheduled class time per the program syllabus. The fee for the American Red Cross certification is included with the student’s program tuition.
Being certified assures employers and the public that you are recognized as a qualified professional and is a means of measuring and documenting knowledge that is usually required to be in today’s medical field.
