The duration of EKG and phlebotomy technician training offered by New York Medical Career Training Center is 36 hours. The program is meant to provide students with complete training for comprehensive learning. After the completion of program, students are provided with EKG training certificate.
In our EKG training program, candidates are trained to perform electrocardiograph on patients that are being supervised by a physician, obtain blood samples and other specimen prescribed by licensed health care departments.
They also learn how to label samples collected in tubes with adequate information about the patient, such as name, date of birth, time of collection, etc.
We encourage our students to prepare for National certification exams conducted by NHA to receive professional excellence in healthcare (although it is absolutely optional).
