The Return to Campus

As everything starts to open back up and more people get their vaccinations, we all must make the transition back to our in-person life. Kids are returning to schools, people are going back to their office jobs, and schools are welcoming students back to campus.

Here at Boardman Training Center, we are so excited for our students to be back on campus. Just like in years past, there are great advantages to learning in an on-campus environment. When you attend our healthcare career training classes here at BTC, you get an interactive education, lots of in-person support, and the chance to build great connections.

Jennifer Fellows – Student Highlight

Meet Jennifer Fellows, our student highlight for the week here at Boardman Training Center!

Like many students who enroll at Boardman Training Center, Jennifer had a different career before her path led her to our healthcare training classes. For over a decade, she worked as a cosmetologist, ran salons, educated and trained others, and served as a district leader and manager.

Jennifer also previously attended a technical school for cosmetology but did not have a good experience. She wanted a school that really cares about its students and found that in BTC.

When asked why she chose Boardman Training Center to further her education, Jennifer said it was because of “the quality of staff and education. They care. They care about your health, happiness, and education.”

Jennifer Fellows-Student Highlight

As Jennifer decided what she wanted to pursue for her new career, she knew that she still wanted to work with people. This led her to a career in the healthcare field, as this would allow her to work with people and make a difference in their lives every day.

After considering the different healthcare programs here at BTC, Jennifer decided on the Cardio Phlebotomy program that trains students for a healthcare career in only 24 weeks while preparing them for professional certifications, including Certified Phlebotomy Technician* and Certified EKG Technician*.

Now that Jennifer is almost finished with this program, she has decided to continue her education with the Medical Office Specialist program. In this healthcare training program, Jennifer will learn valuable hands-on skills, such as recording vital signs, charting, collecting lab specimens, performing injections, and completing basic wound care.

“My favorite part of attending BTC are the friendships I have made with my classmates, the quality of learning, and the respectful environment in which we learn and grow,” says Jennifer.

When asked who is her favorite teacher at Boardman Training Center, Jennifer says, “I honestly don’t have a favorite. I have had almost all of them in one way or another.” However, she does say that she loves intro class the best.

In five years, Jennifer would like to have a job educating and working in a lab, with a 401k retirement plan, health benefits, and a dayshift schedule. She wants to be happy and successful!

Jennifer says that she would absolutely refer Boardman Training Center to a friend. “They are how all schools should be. The level of care behind the scenes helps mold us in the classrooms. They are great role models!”

Are you in a different career and thinking of switching to a career in healthcare, just like Jennifer was? Do you want a career that allows you to make an impact in people’s lives every day when you go to work? Are you looking for a more meaningful and fulfilling career? If so, a career in healthcare may be perfect for you!

Our healthcare training programs are designed to meet the needs of today’s healthcare employers. We equip our students with the knowledge and hands-on skills they need to excel in the real world.

We’re Here for You Through COVID-19

As we all adapt to dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic and the new normal, life has changed for each and every one of us in the last few weeks. From having our daily movements restricted, to homeschooling our kids, to the heroes on the front lines who are courageously battling the virus, we have all been affected.

At Boardman Training Center, we want our students, our community, and our future students to know that we are here for you and will support you in every way we can. We’re all in this fight together and we will get through it together.

Supporting BTC Students

At BTC, we think of ourselves as a family, and not just a school. Throughout this difficult and uncertain time, we continue to stay committed to our purpose, to empower change by creating opportunity.

We’re committed to supporting and serving our BTC family of students during the COVID-19 pandemic by offering live online classes that allow students to continue receiving the education and training necessary to begin a rewarding healthcare career. With this online remote classroom instruction, students can continue to work toward achieving their career goals.

In Ohio, educational institutions are considered essential businesses, so students can travel to campus to get distance learning materials or other related essential services. At the BTC campus, we’re taking every precaution necessary to ensure our facilities are sanitized and are operating under social distancing requirements. We understand that many students cannot travel to campus, so instructors are available to assist students remotely with anything they need.

Supporting Our Community

While we continue to support our students throughout this time, we are also highly invested in the local healthcare community and remain dedicated to serving it as best we can by providing the local workforce with qualified medical professionals.

With healthcare career training programs including Cardio Phlebotomy, EKG Technician, Phlebotomy Technician, and Medical Office Specialist, BTC graduates are on the front lines battling the COVID-19 virus by providing critical support to physician’s offices, hospitals, and clinics.

We pledge to continue to support community members and local healthcare teams by training and preparing critical healthcare workers who are essential during the pandemic.

Supporting Future Students

There have been many people and families negatively impacted because of COVID-19 and the mandatory restrictions on non-essential businesses. Many people have been laid off or lost their jobs and millions around the country have already applied for unemployment benefits.

We are a school with the purpose of empowering change by creating opportunity, so we believe that it’s our responsibility to help people get retrained, enabling them to go back to work. To allow people to begin working toward a meaningful healthcare career, we are now offering virtual campus visits for all potential students. We hope this will provide the opportunity for those who have been negatively affected to start their path to a more secure career.

This time of uncertainty can be especially hard for high school seniors who are making decisions about what to do after graduation. We encourage all high school seniors to explore our career training programs that allow you to get on the fast track to a successful and rewarding healthcare career.

Sarah Borngesser – Student Highlight

We are excited to feature our student highlight for the week, Sarah Borngesser!

Sarah is enrolled in the EKG Technician and Phlebotomy Technician programs at Boardman Training Center. She started classes in September 2018, and she loves BTC and the positive atmosphere that you feel as soon as you walk in the door.

Sarah Borngesser

Before deciding to attend classes at BTC, Sarah says she was working at a call center and pretty upset with her life, because she wasn’t doing anything for her future. “BTC gave me meaning to my life,” says Sarah.

“I chose BTC because it was a small campus, close to home, with small class sizes and career-driven classes,” says Sarah. After meeting with Nikki Granger, Admission Advisor, she knew BTC was the right choice.

Sarah had previously attended a university in Florida for a short time, but says it was very stressful, with big classes and a lot of people.

At Boardman Training Center, Sarah is on the fast-track to a great healthcare career with small class sizes, personalized attention, and short-term programs.

Sarah has worked in the front office in healthcare and always wanted to get more into the clinical aspects of the medical field. She chose the EKG Technician and Phlebotomy Technician programs to get the experience needed for her hands-on healthcare career.

“My favorite part of attending BTC is the staff. I love Stephen because he makes learning easy and fun, and Nikki has always helped me too,” says Sarah. Medical Assisting is her favorite class because she loves the hands-on, clinical part.

Sarah’s parents are very supportive of her! Her mom has worked in the healthcare field for 30 years as a medical assistant. As a child, Sarah would go on car rides with her mom while she traveled around to draw blood from patients, and always thought it was very exciting!

Sarah recommends BTC to everyone and is always sharing her positive experience with others. “I was not happy with my life before attending BTC, but they made me feel like what I want to do is possible,” says Sarah.
