She was also a stay-at-home mom with a daughter who started kindergarten this year. Since her daughter would be in school, Mackenzie thought it would be the perfect time to go back to school.

While she had a good experience at her previous schools, Mackenzie was looking for something more hands-on that she could complete quicker. “I wanted more of a fast-paced program that was hands-on. I decided to enroll in the Cardio Phlebotomy program and am super excited.”

When asked what her favorite part of attending BTC is so far, Mackenzie said, “honestly, my classmates! We have become like family and are always there to support one another.”

Mackenzie has great things to say about the staff and instructors here at Boardman Training Center. “Nikki is definitely my support girl. She is very understanding and caring and is always there for me when I need her.”

After graduation, Mackenzie wants to start her career in the healthcare field. “I would love to work in any kind of doctor’s office, but preferably pediatrics.”

In addition to working in a doctor’s office, students who graduate from the Cardio Phlebotomy program have the opportunity to begin a healthcare career in medical facilities like hospitals, clinics, laboratories, long-term care facilities, and cancer centers.

When asked how she would like her life to be in five years, Mackenzie says she is looking for a stable and secure career. “I just want a steady job working in a doctor’s office Monday through Friday and being able to spend the weekends with my family.”

Mackenzie says that she would absolutely refer Boardman Training Center to a friend. “Yes, this has definitely been a learning experience that has improved my self-confidence. I believe anyone can succeed as long as they put forth the work and effort.”

In addition to learning valuable knowledge and practicing your skills with hands-on training, Cardio Phlebotomy students are prepared to sit for the Certified Phlebotomy Technician and Certified EKG Technician certification exams.

Amar’ia Yates – Student Highlight

Meet Amar’ia Yates, our student highlight feature this week at Boardman Training Center!

Like many people who have just graduated high school, Amar’ia was unsure what she wanted to do next. It can be challenging to choose the one that’s right for you with so many different options.

“I’d just finished high school a few months before. I was working in fast food and retail, and I wasn’t happy,” Amar’ia said. “I had a sense of what I wanted out of life, but I just wasn’t sure where to start.”

After looking at the options available to continue her education, Amar’ia decided she wanted a fast-track healthcare training program that gives you the skills you need and is affordable.

Amar'ia Yates-Student Highlight

“The staff is wonderful. They’ve worked with me, and for once, I felt as someone other than me and my family cared about my education,” said Amar’ia on her decision to attend Boardman Training Center.

She chose to enroll in the Cardio Phlebotomy program, which trains students in just 24 weeks for entry-level opportunities in the healthcare field.

“I choose my program because I wanted to get my foot in the door for a medical career and so I can feel useful to other people in the world,” said Amar’ia.

In the Cardio Phlebotomy training program, Amar’ia will learn and practice specialized skills to use on the job when she starts her new healthcare career. Performing EKGs, drawing blood, completing venipuncture procedures, and practicing patient care are some of the valuable skills Amar’ia will develop as she completes the program.

When asked about her favorite part of attending Boardman Training Center, Amar’ia had great things to say about the staff. “My favorite part of BTC would be the staff there. No one wants to see you fail. They’re like your second family. If you’re having a hard time, they’ll do everything they can to assist you and get you where you need to be,” said Amar’ia.

Amar’ia says that she can’t choose who her favorite teacher or class is just yet, since she has only finished one course. However, she will say that Ms. Sandy, the instructor of her Intro to Healthcare class, was wonderful. “She made class interesting while still teaching me and my fellow classmates. She always pushed into our heads that we can do this, that we’re going to finish strong, and how proud she was of us.”

After she completes the Cardio Phlebotomy program and graduates, Amar’ia would like to work in a hospital, blood bank, or nursing home.

In addition to working in a healthcare facility, Amar’ia would like to further her education in the medical field and enroll in a program or be looking into programs within five years.

When asked if she would recommend Boardman Training Center to a friend, Amar’ia said, “Of course I would refer a friend, because if you’re like me and didn’t really know where to start, BTC is a great place to start. If you’re like my fellow classmates, looking to further your education, or you want to get back into the medical field, choose BTC, and let BTC choose you and meet your goals.”

Maybe you are just like Amar’ia, a little unsure of what to do next and how to get started in a healthcare career. Or perhaps you are like her classmates, who want to take the next step and further their healthcare training and education.

Mikalena Grewe – Student Highlight

Meet Mikalena Grewe, our student highlight feature for this week at Boardman Training Center!

As a current student in the Cardio Phlebotomy program, Mikalena is completing her healthcare training classes, preparing for a new career that will allow her to help people and make a difference every day.

“I chose BTC because of the one-on-one environment you get. The classes are smaller, so each student is more likely to have one-on-one help from the teachers. I was also happy with the pricing of the classes and the classes they offer being a steppingstone into the medical field to be able to further my career one day,” said Mikalena.

Before enrolling with BTC, Mikalena was unsure of what to do and what direction she wanted to go. She had previously attended a larger university after high school, and while she loved the college environment, she wasn’t in love with her major of high school education. Education allowed her to help students but didn’t give her the same feeling as working in the medical field.

“I was struggling to decide if I wanted to further my education at a university, taking out more student loans and not knowing where in the medical field I wanted to be, or going back to a career center and being a CNA again,” said Mikalena.

Mikalena Grewe-Student Highlight

After deciding that she wanted to pursue a career in healthcare and choosing to enroll with Boardman Training Center, Mikalena started school in the Cardio Phlebotomy career training program.

“I picked the Cardio Phlebotomy program because of how much education I would receive, and by having certifications in both EKG and phlebotomy, I would have better job opportunities,” she said.

While enrolled in the Cardio Phlebotomy program, students have the opportunity to train for a new healthcare career in only 24 weeks, practicing hands-on skills that will be used on the job. Performing EKGs, drawing blood, and carrying out venipuncture procedures are just some of the hands-on skills students learn in this exciting program.

At Boardman Training Center, we love providing our students with a supportive and caring environment that feels more like a family than a school.

“My favorite part of BTC is that after so many weeks, the students in your classes and the instructors start to become a family. You are working together to help one another become successful in the field. Each student and staff member is rooting for you. I have met people I hope to have in my life for years to come,” said Mikalena.

So far, Mikalena’s favorite class has been phlebotomy. Due to COVID-19, the classes have been broken into groups, and her instructor Nikki has been great. “She is always encouraging and willing to help whenever students need her,” said Mikalena. She is also very thankful for Sandy, her instructor for the intro class. “Even after intro ended, I’ve been able to text her to ask questions or call when needed. I’m grateful that BTC has such amazing teachers.”

After graduation, Mikalena hopes to work in a hospital as a phlebotomist. in five years, her goal is to save enough money to go back to school to become a CT or MRI technician.

When asked if she would refer Boardman Training Center to a friend, Mikalena said, “Yes, I would refer a friend to BTC because of the affordable price and the friendly people they would meet along the way.”

Are you looking for a career that allows you to help others daily? Do you want to fast-track your way to an exciting new career in healthcare? Then Boardman Training Center could be the perfect choice for you!

Shaun McCune – Graduate Highlight

Meet Shaun McCune, our graduate student highlight for this week at Boardman Training Center!

Like many students who attend BTC, Shaun wanted a quick and affordable way to get the training he needs to begin working in the healthcare field. “I was considering going into the medical field, and BTC offered an affordable way to start working in this field. I also prefer having live, on-campus classes instead of a purely online course,” said Shaun.

Shaun enrolled in the Cardio Phlebotomy program at BTC and is on the fast-track to starting his new career. When deciding on which program to attend, Shaun thought both EKG and phlebotomy seemed interesting, which is what led him to the Cardio Phlebotomy classes that include both. Shaun also thought that completing training in multiple areas sounded like a great way to keep job prospects open.

Before enrolling at Boardman Training Center, Shaun attended a larger university and earned a Bachelor of Music in guitar performance. While Shaun learned a lot more than he expected about music and guitar, he said he could not make a good living with that degree.

Shaun McCune - Graduate Highlight

Shaun also worked at a shipping facility before deciding to attend BTC. He enjoyed the job there but did not want to pursue a career in freight services. Instead, he wanted to start a career in the healthcare field.

When asked what his favorite part of attending BTC was, Shaun said it is “getting to know the instructors and staff who have been very open to my questions and future possibilities.”

Shaun said that Mrs. Irene was a very engaging teacher, and EKG has been a super interesting topic to learn about, adding that he has found that cardiac rhythms have similarities with his music training.

“I have been fortunate to have already landed an EKG Monitor Tech position at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Youngstown. Gaining hospital experience while having full-time hours and benefits is a big plus,” said Shaun.

In the future, Shaun hopes to continue his training in the healthcare field by going into cardiac sonography. He believes that having experience with EKGs is very applicable to diagnostic imaging of the heart. Shaun also feels that there is something satisfying about working with rhythms and sound waves.

When asked if he would recommend Boardman Training Center to a friend, Shaun said, “yes, especially if the individual wants to go into medicine but does not know where to start.” For example, Shaun said that someone who wants to go into nursing could start working in healthcare as a phlebotomist and then find an employer that offers tuition assistance to complete a nursing program.

“I found the teachers and staff to be very supportive and flexible. They are extremely helpful with the hands-on, stressful elements of phlebotomy. They are very passionate about seeing me achieve my goals and start a new career,” said Shaun.

Just like Shaun has done, you can start your path to a new medical field career with healthcare classes at Boardman Training Center! Explore our healthcare programs in Cardio Phlebotomy, EKG Technician, Phlebotomy Technician, and Medical Office Specialist today.

Kharley says she chose to complete cardio phlebotomy and medical office classes “to get better job opportunities, such as better pay and benefits, and also because I have always loved the health field and helping people.”

Before enrolling at Boardman Training Center, Kharley attended a larger university for hospitality management but then realized that field did not have the opportunities she was looking for, especially in the local area. The cost of tuition was also too high.

In addition to attending college, Kharley also works at a restaurant while completing her healthcare career training at BTC. “I always thought maybe the restaurant I worked for would be a good career, but then I realized I was settling for less,” said Kharley.

Kharley is having a great experience as a student at BTC while completing her healthcare classes and training for a new career. “It is like my home away from home! The teachers are awesome and so are my peers,” said Kharley.

So far, Kharley says that Irene and Sandy have been her favorite teachers because they care about the students and make sure all your concerns and questions are answered.

After graduation, Kharley wants to work as a MA in a physician’s office or hospital. In five years, Kharley would love to have a well-established career in the medical field and possibly furthering her education.

Before deciding to attend BTC and get on the fast track to an exciting new career, Nicole attended larger universities, but decided that they were not worth it for her. In high school, she also attended a local career and technical center, earning her STNA.

Nicole has many years of experience in the medical field, as she worked eight years at a retirement home and one year at a local hospital. Eventually, Nicole decided to try working in a different field, but she soon discovered that a career in healthcare is what’s right for her.

Nicole Habeger-Student Highlight

“I tried to get out of the medical field and very soon discovered it is what I need to do. I am a caretaker through and through,” said Nicole. She has little cousins and loves them like they are her own kids. She is always there for them and helps with anything they need.

“It seems like a great place. I fell in love with phlebotomy at the hospital and they offer it here,” said Nicole when asked why she choose Boardman Training Center to prepare for an exciting career in the healthcare field.

Nicole said her favorite part of attending Boardman Training Center is “the smaller classes and the personalities of all the instructors and directors. They truly care about everyone who walks through that door!”

When asked what her favorite class is so far at BTC, Nicole said that phlebotomy is her favorite because she loves drawing blood.

After graduation, Nicole wants to work as a phlebotomist or in a medical office so that she has the opportunity to help other people. With so many years of experience in healthcare, Nicole knows she has a lot of directions she can go in her future career, and she would like to pursue more positions in a lab setting.

Nicole would like her life to be comfortable and happy in five years. She would like to get married and start a family, and does not want to struggle living paycheck to paycheck.

Nicole said she would absolutely recommend Boardman Training Center to a friend! “I truly believe this is the best money I’ve ever spent. They set you up for success. They will do everything in their power to make sure everything is suitable for your needs. If there is anything they can do to make your life a little easier, stand back because they will all do their best to help,” said Nicole.

Now that she’s on her way to an exciting new career in healthcare, Nicole said she is very thankful that she was able to start the Cardio Phlebotomy program at BTC. She enjoys previous graduates coming into visit the teachers and giving pep talks to the classes.

When asked if she has any advice for others thinking of attending healthcare career training classes at BTC, Nicole said, “Nikki is persistent. If she sees something in you, she is not going to let you walk away easily. Just ask questions, because if you have questions, chances are that someone else does. Never be afraid to talk to your instructors. Don’t give up! They won’t let you anyway!”

After she completes her cardio phlebotomy classes, Nicole would like to enroll in the Medical Office Specialist career training program at Boardman Training Center to continue to advance her skills in the healthcare field.

Katarina Lewis – Student Highlight

Meet Katarina Lewis, our student highlight for the week!

Like many people who want to start a career in healthcare, Katarina felt she needed to earn a professional medical certification to get a job. She chose Boardman Training Center to get on the fast track to a great healthcare career by preparing for a certification in just weeks.

“I heard a lot of good things about BTC and I really liked how quick the program was, which allowed me to become certified and find a job in a very reasonable amount of time,” said Katarina.

Katarina has always been interested in the medical field and chose the Cardio Phlebotomy program because she felt it would give her the hands-on experience she was looking for in a career training program.

Before enrolling at BTC, Katarina attended a larger university and earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology. She says it was a great experience and she learned a lot, but she still needed a medical certification before she could get a job in healthcare.

Katarina Lewis-Student Highlight

After graduating with her bachelor’s degree, Katarina started Cardio Phlebotomy classes at BTC one month later, because she wants to earn a certification and get finished with school as soon as possible.

Katarina is currently working as a Radiology Clerical Associate at Mercy Health-St. Elizabeth. In this role, she looks up test results and makes sure they are good, and then communicates the results of any that are not good to the next level up. She plays an important role in the healthcare team, working with patients, doctors, technicians, and nurses.

While attending Boardman Training Center, Katarina has had a great student experience. “The teachers are always here to help the students, which you can’t always find at other schools. They want you to succeed,” said Katarina.

Mike Giles from EKG has been Katarina’s favorite teacher because “he brought real-life stories to class every day, which made it entertaining and helped us learn the material.”

After graduating from BTC and earning her professional healthcare certification, Katarina hopes to work as a phlebotomist at an outpatient lab or a hospital lab. She says she is not too picky about her job, as long as she enjoys it.

In five years, Katarina wants to be working at a hospital or medical practice as a physician’s assistant. She considers the Cardio Phlebotomy program at BTC a stepping stone that is allowing her to achieve her ultimate goal of becoming a physician’s assistant, and she is thankful for the experience she has gained here.

When asked if she would refer Boardman Training Center to a friend, Katarina says “yes, the instructors are great but so are the admissions team. They make you feel welcome from the start.”

Katarina has some words of advice for incoming students at BTC. “Keep an open mind about the programs. Be patient with the process of learning everything and putting those skills to actual use.

Jodi Roberts – Student Highlight

Meet Jodi Roberts, our student highlight feature for this week!

Jodi recently decided to pursue her goal of working in healthcare by enrolling in the Cardio Phlebotomy program at Boardman Training Center. Working in healthcare is something Jodi has always wanted to try since she was younger, because it enables her to help people.

Jodi Roberts-Student Highlight

When deciding what school to attend to get the healthcare training she needed, Jody chose Boardman Training Center because it was recommended to her by a friend.

“I work with a former student. She recommended BTC. She had good things to say about the school and the instructors,” said Jodi. After hearing about BTC from her coworker, Jodi called the very next day and set up an appointment to come visit the school.

Jodi said she chose the Cardio Phlebotomy program because she “thought it sounded very interesting to draw blood and other specimens, and I wanted to help people.”

At first, Jodi just was going to enroll in the Phlebotomy Technician program, but after meeting with Nikki Granger, Admissions Advisor at BTC, Jodi decided to go with Cardio Phlebotomy. Jodi thought that learning additional skills, such as EKGs, would make her more marketable when applying for jobs in the medical field.

Previously, Jodi attended a larger university, and says while the teachers were good, the class sizes were a little too big. At this time, Jodi wasn’t sure what she wanted to do and didn’t have a set major. She decided to take a semester off to figure out what she wanted to do.

After getting married, staying home with her kids for a few years, and working part-time, Jodi decided she wanted to do something different, and was ready to make her move into the healthcare field.

When asked what her favorite part is of attending BTC, Jodi said it’s “the people. The instructors are very helpful. The other students also do whatever they can to help. The hours also work really well with my work schedule.”

Phlebotomy has been Jodi’s favorite class and Irene has been her favorite teacher while at BTC. “Some students learn at a different pace, and Irene gives a lot of individual attention, and addresses what you need to work on,” said Jodi.

After graduating from the Cardio Phlebotomy career training program, Jodi would like to work in a walk-in lab setting. She would prefer this instead of working in a hospital, as the hours would be better for her.

In five years, Jodi would like to be doing phlebotomy full time and have her own health insurance. She would love to do some traveling with her husband, including Alaska for him and the South to get some sunshine for her!

Jodi said she would refer Boardman Training Center to others who want to start a career in healthcare. “I like the small class sizes. The hours work great for people who work. They really want you to succeed. They help you with what you need to work on,” said Jodi.

When Jodi first began the Cardio Phlebotomy program, she was nervous, but she says she is not nervous anymore because her instructor was able to help her. “You get a lot of individual attention,” said Jodi.

For potential students who are considering enrolling in career training classes with Boardman Training Center, Jodi has some advice. “Just do it. They will work with you and you can do more than you think you can. Make sure to study!”

Are you ready to jump-start your successful healthcare career? With small class sizes, personalized attention, hands-on training, and flexible financing options, BTC has just what you need.

Eileen Syfert – Student Highlight

Meet Eileen Syfert, our student highlight for the week at Boardman Training Center!

Have you ever felt like you wanted a more fulfilling career, one that allows you to really make a difference and help people? This is exactly how Eileen felt before deciding to begin fast track career training at BTC.

Eileen Syfert

After helping her grandfather for a year, it sparked Eileen’s interest to work in the medical field and do something worthwhile with her career.

Additionally, Eileen traveled to Europe for three months and visited Norway and Sweden. This was a great experience and gave her some time to reflect, which really put things into perspective for her. Eileen knew she felt lost in her career but didn’t know exactly what she wanted to do.

Before enrolling with Boardman Training Center, Eileen attended a community college for criminal justice and worked for a criminal defense attorney as a legal assistant, but she didn’t like sitting at a desk all day and wanted something that would allow her to get up and move around more.

“I choose BTC because I wanted a new, more fulfilling career, and everyone here was extremely helpful, positive, and encouraging,” said Eileen. After coming to the Boardman Training Center campus and meeting with Nikki, BTC Admissions Advisor, Eileen realized there was nothing stopping her from enrolling in school, and she signed up the very next day.

Eileen chose the Cardio Phlebotomy program at BTC as a way to break into the healthcare field.

“I thought the programs here would be the perfect introduction into the healthcare field. I felt like I could make a difference and have more purpose at work,” said Eileen.

So far, phlebotomy has been Eileen’s favorite class. She says that drawing blood is exciting and a nice balance of challenging and fun.

When asked what her favorite part of attending fast track training classes at BTC is, Eileen said, “I love that I feel valued and heard as a student. Anytime I have an issue, the instructors go above and beyond to help me overcome the issue.”

Eileen says she feels a sense of belonging at Boardman Training Center and has already recommended the school to others. One person has already signed up and will be starting classes soon!
