Courtney Preston – Student Highlight

Meet Courtney Preston, this week’s student highlight here at Boardman Training Center!

As a current student in the Cardio-Phlebotomy program, Courtney is gaining essential knowledge and practicing the hands-on skills she needs to succeed in a career in the healthcare field.

Courtney Preston-Student Highlight

“I have always liked the medical field, and I wanted to get back into it without having to go to school for another 1-2 years,” said Courtney.

Before deciding to enroll in cardio phlebotomy classes at Boardman Training Center, Courtney attended a number of other schools, including a larger university, a college, and a beauty school. Although she says she liked all three, she knew she was capable of more and wanted to get back into the medical field. Courtney also works in a beauty shop and does makeup for weddings and special events.

After deciding to get back into the medical field, Courtney looked around for phlebotomy schools and chose BTC. “I decided this was the best one,” she said.

While enrolled in her cardio phlebotomy training classes, Courtney will practice valuable skills, such as performing EKGs, drawing blood, caring for patients, and completing venipuncture procedures. She will also prepare for two professional healthcare certifications, including Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT)* and Certified EKG Technician (CET)*.

When asked what her favorite part of attending Boardman Training Center is, Courtney said, “my friends that I have made here make every day I’m here that much more enjoyable, and the knowledge I have gained is a plus!”

Courtney is having a great experience with her instructors, especially her phlebotomy teacher Elyse. “She is one of the best teachers I’ve ever had. She goes above and beyond to teach us. The knowledge I gained from her is amazing. I couldn’t ask for a better teacher.”

After she completes her career training classes and graduates from BTC, Courtney’s ideal job is to work in a lab or hospital setting, drawing blood or being an EKG technician. She believes these are good career opportunities for her since she is preparing for certifications in those areas as part of her training.

Courtney has wonderful and ambitious goals for her future. “In five years, I would like to be very successful and knowledgeable in the field I choose, knowing that I have accomplished something to make my life better in the long run,” said Courtney.

When asked if she would refer BTC to a friend, Courtney said, “yes, I have felt very welcome from day one, and the knowledge you get within a short amount of time is worth it.”

Do you want to start a fulfilling career in healthcare? Are you looking for a short-term training program to get you there? Then Boardman Training Center might be the perfect choice for you!

Mackenzie Fusco – Student Highlight

Say hello to Mackenzie Fusco, our student highlight feature for this week!

Mackenzie is currently enrolled in the Cardio Phlebotomy career training program here at Boardman Training Center. In this exciting program, Mackenzie will learn valuable skills, including performing EKGs, drawing blood, completing venipuncture procedures, and practicing fundamental patient care. Upon graduation from this fast-track program, Mackenzie will be prepared for an entry-level career in the healthcare field.

“I wanted a school that was smaller and local. A friend of mine referred BTC and loved their program,” said Mackenzie.

Before enrolling at Boardman Training Center, Mackenzie attended two other schools, earned an Associate Degree in Medical Assisting, and started her nursing prerequisites.

Mackenzie Fusco-Student Highlight

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.

If you’re looking for a healthcare training program that teaches hands-on skills in fast-track classes, BTC may be perfect for you! Learn more about our healthcare programs and request information now to get started today!

How to Start Your Journey to Becoming a Phlebotomy Technician

You’re ready to take the next step in your career and become a phlebotomy technician, but how do you do it? What training do you need to start a new career as a phlebotomy technician?

At Boardman Training Center, we love helping students achieve their career goals and dreams. Our purpose is to empower change by creating opportunity, and we take pride in doing this for each and every student.

Keep reading as we share the four steps you can take to become a phlebotomy technician!

How to Start Your Journey to Becoming a Phlebotomy Technician

Step 1: Choose the Right Phlebotomy Program for You

The first thing you must do to become a phlebotomy technician is choose a career training program that’s right for you. Enrolling in a program that fits your specific needs will increase your chances of success in the program and in your career. As you research various options for getting the training you need, be sure to choose one that provides exactly what you need to start your career. A quality phlebotomy technician program should include:

  • Training in phlebotomy best practices
  • Developing hands-on phlebotomy skills
  • Preparing for a phlebotomy certification exam

In addition to choosing a quality phlebotomy training program, you should also look for a school that provides a positive student experience and a supportive educational environment. Small class sizes, personalized attention, and caring teachers will help you succeed in your classes.

Step 2: Learn Hands-On Skills

Phlebotomy technicians are essential to the healthcare team because they perform critical patient procedures and help create a positive experience. If you’ve ever had to have blood drawn, you know how important it is to have a well-trained phlebotomy technician performing the procedure.

Learning about the various techniques and gaining hands-on experience in drawing blood is what will set you up for success when you start your career. At Boardman Training Center, our Phlebotomy Technician program is designed to give you the exact knowledge, skills, and experience you need to become a phlebotomy technician.

Best practices for phlebotomy technicians, various procedures for specimen collection, and different types of skin puncture techniques are some of the valuable skills students learn in BTC’s Phlebotomy Technician career training program.

Step 3: Prepare for Certification

In addition to learning and practicing hands-on skills, a quality phlebotomy program will prepare you for a professional phlebotomy certification. Many employers prefer candidates who hold a certification because they know that you have met the high-quality standards to earn and maintain the certification.

Earning a phlebotomy certification can make you more marketable to potential employers, such as hospitals, labs, physicians’ offices, clinics, blood centers, surgical centers, and more. Healthcare employers want professionals with a high level of skills, and a certification lets them know you can get the job done!

Students who enroll in BTC’s Phlebotomy Technician program prepare for the Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT)* exam from the National Healthcareer Association. Since students have the opportunity to prepare for this exciting certification while completing the phlebotomy program, they are ready for career success after graduation!

Step 4: Start Your Phlebotomy Technician Career with BTC

Since you now know the exact steps to start your journey to becoming a phlebotomy technician, it’s time to take the first step! There are many benefits to choosing BTC to start your path to a phlebotomy career. We offer a short-term Phlebotomy Technician program that can be completed in just weeks, so you can start your new career quickly. You will gain essential knowledge, hands-on skills, and valuable experience, while also training for a professional phlebotomy certification.

We offer a supportive school environment, personalized attention, small class sizes, and flexible financing options to help you start your exciting new career.

Erika Norris – Student Highlight

We are excited to announce our student highlight feature for this week, Erika Norris!

Erika Norris-Student Highlight

Like many Boardman Training Center students, Erika wants a career that allows her to make a difference and help people in their daily lives, but she doesn’t want to spend 4-6 years in school taking unnecessary classes to get there.

This led Erika to BTC, because she needed a fast track career training program that prepares her for what she’ll be doing when she graduates.

“I choose BTC because I want to be in the medical field. I want to help people and BTC helps me do that without all the extra time and money for classes I don’t need,” said Erika.

Before enrolling with BTC, Erika was just working in a job, not in a career field that she loves. Erika said she choose the Cardio Phlebotomy program because “in 24 quick weeks, I could be doing something I love.”

Erika had previously attended college at a larger university, which left her feeling a little lost. “I have gone to college before and it wasn’t for me honestly. Most of my classes were too big, with too much going on, and a lot of classes I didn’t need,” said Erika.

Erika Norris-Student Highlight

Erika said her favorite part of attending Boardman Training Center is the hands-on experience. Her favorite class is Phlebotomy, where she is learning valuable skills she will use in her career. So far, Erika said her favorite teacher is Mike.

After completing her career training program at BTC, Erika hopes to become a Phlebotomist, helping one patient at a time, and to continue growing in her career for years to come.

When asked if she would refer Boardman Training Center to a friend, Erika happily said yes! “I absolutely would. The people here have been nothing but nice to me and really want to see everyone succeed,” said Erika.

Are you ready to start down the path toward a meaningful career just like Erika? Then check out Boardman Training Center today! With small class sizes, personalized attention, and flexible payment plans, we set our students up for continued career success.

Payton Delgado – Student Highlight

Meet Payton Delgado, our student highlight feature for this week!

Payton started at Boardman Training Center in the Phlebotomy Technician program in February 2019 and decided to pursue the Cardio Phlebotomy program as well.

Payton Delgado

“Being here feels right, better than anything else,” said Payton. She loves the small class sizes and flexible schedule that BTC offers to students.

Before attending the fast track training classes at BTC, Payton went to a large university for exercise science but didn’t like it because most of her courses were online and not hands-on. She said it was hard to get into her classes because there was no actual professor teaching and she prefers learning in a hands-on environment.

Payton works in the food industry and knows she does not want to do that for the rest of her life. She has been working in it for a year and can tell that it’s not for her. She wants to do something that will allow her to make a difference.

In the process of deciding what to do next, Payton explored a few different options, but none of them felt right. She was looking for a training program that taught hands-on skills that she could actually use while on the job.

Then, Payton’s mom told her to check out Boardman Training Center because completing a healthcare training program would allow her to do something that is making a difference. Her mom was a true leader and pushed Payton because her mother knew she wanted a career.

Payton loves that BTC is local and that the classes are small. With evening classes, she can continue to work while attending school.

She says that because her classes are only three nights per week and the program is only 24 weeks to complete, she has a much easier time managing everything.

“I chose Cardio Phlebotomy because I like being behind the scenes, and learning about how the heart works interests me,” said Payton.

When asked what her favorite part of attending Boardman Training Center is, Payton said, “Everyone in my class is there for the same reason as me, and we all get along and help each other out.” Because of the small class sizes, she knows everyone and has built great relationships.

Payton said that Sandy is her favorite teacher at BTC because she does a great job explaining everything to her and other students.

Payton recommends Boardman Training Center to others and said that someone she works with has already spoken to Nikki Granger (BTC’s admissions advisor) about enrolling in classes.

Miranda Washington – Student Highlight

Meet Miranda, our student highlight for the week!

Miranda is enrolled in the Cardio-Phlebotomy program and is having a great experience with her medical training classes at Boardman Training Center.

Before enrolling with BTC, Miranda attended a community college to earn an EMT certificate. She says it was an exciting, eventful, and challenging experience, but she was not able to get the experience she wanted.

Miranda Washington

“I heard great things about this training center. I also appreciated the daylight classes and hours, and am excited about the hands-on experience,” says Miranda. Boardman Training Center was recommended to her by a family member to get on the fast track to a great medical career.

Miranda choose the Cardio-Phlebotomy program because she wanted to take the steps needed to pursue a great career in the medical field.  She would love to work in a hospital lab setting and eventually wants to become a nurse.

Learning new things and making new friends is Miranda’s favorite part of attending classes at Boardman Training Center. She loves that everyone is so nice and on the same page with a similar mindset to hers.

With such a busy life, she loves that she can take her classes three days a week. “If someone has a busy life, then BTC is for them,” says Miranda.

So far, Danielle is Miranda’s favorite teacher because she is “sweet, talkative, has experience, is very knowledgeable and is a great teacher.” Miranda says that “she makes everything easy to learn and challenges her students in a good way.”

“It’s nice to go to school with other people who have the same fears as you, so you know you’re not alone. There is support in the classroom here,” says Miranda.

In addition to attending classes at Boardman Training Center, Miranda works for a security company, cares for her 98-year-old grandmother, and is a mother of three children, two boys and one girl, who are very excited that their mom is in school.

At Boardman Training Center, our healthcare programs allow you to kick start your medical career. In addition to Cardio-Phlebotomy, BTC also trains students for EKG Technician, Phlebotomy Technician, and Medical Office Specialist careers.
