How to Choose the Right Career Training Program for You

We all excel at something we enjoy doing or things we are naturally talented in, so selecting a career path that is similar to our talents or the things we enjoy, will help create a more fulfilling career. There are many different options to choose from and sometimes this can be a little mind-boggling as you try to make the best decision.

There are some important steps to take when planning your career path. Setting time aside to create your career goals and finding out the job requirements, as well as searching for the most relevant and helpful training programs, are the right steps to get you into the career of your dreams. This week, we will look at some options that will help you make great career decisions.

Set Your Career Goals

There may be a goal you have in mind, like starting a career as a nurse, or you may require further guidance to help you figure things out. If you are undecided, here are a few questions to help with your thought process, as you create your own personal goals.

  • Why do you want to start a new career? Think about what fuels your passion to work within that specific field. Does motivation come through your family members? Would you like to improve your future or way of life? Are you self-motivated? Or are there other reasons?
  • What are you looking for in a new career? To decide which goals are a best-fit, it is important to understand what you would like to achieve from your career path. Would you prefer a high paying salary that gives you better security? Do you need more flexible working hours to create a better work-life balance? Are you motivated to work in a field where you are able to help others? Is working from home a top priority?
  • What areas are you interested in? Do you have any natural talents that will help you on your career path? Are you into technology? Do you enjoy interacting with others? Whatever your decision, select something that you excel at naturally.
  • Do you plan to continue advancing your career? Creating a plan of action will help you get to your chosen career path and advance. You can begin with the basics, then work your way up in the working world.
  • Where do you want to be in five years? You need to visualize where you want to be in the long run. In order to meet your career goals, you must have an idea of the end result. Would you like a new car or a dream home? Maybe you want to start a college fund for your child? Visualizing these results will continue to motivate you as you go.

Once you’ve completed your list of answers, you will be on the right track to creating a future you will thrive in. Always remember the goals you set should be SMART goals that are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and timely.

Take a look at this SMART career goal example: I want to start a career as a phlebotomy technician in Boardman within one year.

Determine Your Needs

You’ve successfully determined your goals, and now it’s time to think about what you need to achieve them. Each career path is different and will have different training requirements to help you get there.

In this stage, examine the job descriptions for the careers you are interested in pursuing. If you want to become a medical office specialist, take a look at the vacancies within your city for that role. What educational background do candidates need to have in order to apply? Is a license or certification mandatory? Do they require previous experience? When you are done reviewing the job descriptions and requirements, make a list of the things that are most relevant. This list is exactly what you need to qualify for the job.

It’s important to take note of the job qualifications, and it’s equally important to understand the option that works best for you. Here are some additional questions to help guide you.

  • What is your learning style? Everyone retains information in different ways and the way we remember this information is linked to our specific learning style. Some people learn better when they hear about a topic, while others are more attentive when they are reading. Some prefer to learn with the practical approach of completing a task and seeing the outcome themselves. Finding your learning style will help improve the career training choices you make.
  • What is your personality type? Our personality traits also affect how we retain information. Try taking a personality test like the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator. This could help you learn more about yourself and how you can best utilize your learning style.

You now have the checklist of requirements you need in order to choose the best career training classes for you.

Research Career Training Options

Now it’s time to research the variety of career training program options that are available and choose the one that fits you best. In order to understand the options, you need to explore the programs that will help you meet your career goals and work with your specific learning style.

  • Does the program train you for the specific job you want? Do you recall that list you made based on job descriptions? We created it for this question. Take that list and do a comparison of the career training programs you are considering. Does it provide you with the knowledge and skills required? Do you prepare for professional certifications? Does the program timeframe align with your career goals? Will it help you advance in your career?
  • Is the school aligned with your needs? The next step to take, is to determine which school will be the best institution to meet your needs. Here are a few questions you can ask for guidance. Is there a dedicated admissions advisor that will help you understand the requirements for the application process? Are flexible financing options offered? Is the teaching style aligned to your learning style? Do students get personalized instruction?
  • What support is offered to students? You need to be aware of how the school will support you as a student and also after you’ve completed your career training. Here are a few questions to ask. Is the environment supportive for students? Is additional help and tutoring offered if needed? Are there any services available that will continue to be offered even after graduation?

When you have reviewed the options, assess the pros and cons by making a list to help you decide. After you’ve evaluated the career training options, you can confidently make a selection that will allow you to have a successful career.

Nicole Habeger – Student Highlight

Meet Nicole Habeger, our student highlight feature for the week!

Nichole has worked in healthcare for many years and is attending the Cardio Phlebotomy program at Boardman Training Center. She chose this program because caring for others is important to her.

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.

Are you looking to start an exciting new career in the healthcare field? Or maybe you already work in healthcare but want to advance your career by gaining specific knowledge and skills? Whatever your career goals, Boardman Training Center offers healthcare training classes to help you get there.

BreannaMarie Slaven – Student Highlight

Meet BreannaMarie Slaven, our student highlight for this week!

BreannaMarie has always wanted a job in healthcare because working in the medical field runs in her family. Her mom has always worked in healthcare and her aunt is a phlebotomist, and she even has cousins who are doctors and nurses.

“I choose BTC because my cousin went here and she couldn’t help but brag about how good the school is and how friendly the environment truly is,” said BreannaMarie. She chose the Phlebotomy Technician program because her aunt is a phlebotomist and she wanted to follow in her footsteps.

Before enrolling in a fast track career training program at BTC, BreannaMarie attended a larger university. She says it was nice, but it didn’t give her what she wanted from a university.

BreannaMarie Slaven-Student Highlight

After growing up in the south, BreannaMarie moved to New Castle about a year ago. After moving to the local area, she began working in healthcare and trying to find her way for what she wants to do with her life.

BreannaMarie currently works at Homemakers Healthcare where she goes to people’s homes and checks in on them.

When BreannaMarie first came into Boardman Training Center, she wasn’t sure what all she wanted to do. She wants to eventually get into nursing and thinks the short-term career training at BTC will help get her there.

“My favorite part is how everyone helps you feel welcome and helps you reach your goals. Everyone helps you build your confidence up more,” said BreannaMarie.

BreannaMarie says she felt welcome as soon as she walked in the door and that BTC is the best school she has ever come to. She loves Nikki and Irene so much. She says she was not confident when she came here but they brought her out of her shell so much.

When asked who her favorite teacher is here at Boardman Training Center, BreannaMarie said, “I honestly don’t have a favorite teacher because they are all so helpful. They have made me want to reach my goals and have all played a role in my life that I will treasure forever.”

BreannaMarie already has a job lined up where her aunt currently works for after she completes the Phlebotomy Technician career training program at BTC. She says her ideal job is to work in a doctor’s office or even a hospital.

“I would like to move further into the healthcare field in the next five years,” said BreannaMarie. After a year or so of working she wants to continue her education. “It never hurts to have a lot under your belt,” she said.

BreannaMarie says she would recommend Boardman Training Center to friends. “Absolutely I would recommend BTC because they will help you as much as they can. I have never been to a school that showed you they want you to succeed as they do here. This is the best school I’ve been to,” said BreannaMarie.

BreannaMarie has some great advice for others. “Never give up on life! Just keep swimming!”

Figuring out the right path to starting an essential healthcare career can be confusing, so we’re sharing the steps with you!

Step 1: Choose a specific healthcare job

The first step to starting your career as an essential healthcare worker is to choose which specific job in the medical field you want to pursue. Today’s healthcare industry has a variety of career paths available for those who want to enter this exciting field. You could become a phlebotomist, medical assistant, medical office specialist, nurse, or even a doctor.

As you think about the specific job you want to do, there are a few questions to ask yourself that will help guide you to the right job choice.

Deciding how long you want to attend school before you start working will also help guide you toward your perfect healthcare job.

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. EKGs and punctures take time, but you will get it. Don’t feel like you’re the only one that doesn’t understand because there are others too.”

Do you need a professional healthcare certification to start your career? Want to get on the fast track to qualifying for your dream healthcare job? Let Boardman Training Center help you achieve your career goals with our healthcare training programs that are completed in just weeks!

We offer small class sizes, personalized attention, a WE CARE family atmosphere, hands-on training, and flexible financing options to help make your career dreams a reality.

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 Steiner – Student Highlight

Meet Sarah Steiner, our student highlight feature for this week!

Sarah is enrolled in the Phlebotomy Technician program at Boardman Training Center, preparing for an exciting and rewarding healthcare career!

“I chose BTC because of the shorter program length and no student loans,” says Sarah. When she came to visit the campus for the first time, Sarah had a great impression of BTC. She loved how small it was, how quickly she could complete the classes, and that the instructors can help more and are very hands-on.

Sarah Steiner-Student Highlight

Before enrolling with BTC, Sarah had previously attended a larger university for two years. She had first majored in fashion merchandising and then went back after a few years for medical assisting. She decided it wasn’t right for her and took some time off, working a variety of retail jobs in the past few years. She knew that these were just jobs, and not a career, and didn’t want to be in them for long.

“I chose this program because the medical field has always interested me and I love helping people,” says Sarah. At first, she wanted to complete the Medical Office Specialist program, but after starting her phlebotomy class, she loved it and realized she wanted to start working and doing that right away. Sarah says she may come back for the MOS program one day!

When asked what her favorite part is of attending Boardman Training Center, Sarah said, “The educators are phenomenal, and I love that I didn’t have to take out student loans.” Not having to take out student loans was important to Sarah because she had already taken out a lot when she attended the university.

“My phlebotomy instructor Irene was my absolute favorite. She made me feel very prepared for each test and the NHA,” says Sarah, who’s ideal job after graduation is working as a Phlebotomist in a hospital.

Sarah has always wanted to work in healthcare, and she was referred to BTC by a friend who attended the Phlebotomy Technician career training program as well.

Sarah loves that she is graduating and does not owe loans to anyone for completing the program. She was recently hired at UPMC and starts her new career next week!

In five years, Sarah would like to be a Lab Manager in a hospital setting. She loves the hands-on environment and feels she would be a good leader. She would also like to work with people who have similar interests as her.

Sarah’s advice for anyone just starting the program is to be proactive in getting prepared for the NHA tests and getting help with your resume. “BTC is great for getting you ready for your career,” says Sarah.

Sarah says she would absolutely refer friends to Boardman Training Center! “The teachers are extremely educated in their field and the entire staff will make sure you’re prepared for your career.”

4 Tips for Balancing School, Work, and Life During the Holidays

The holiday season is here and with it comes festive cookies, holiday parties, and family fun! We all enjoy spending time with loved ones and finding the perfect gifts, but balancing extra activities during the holidays can be a challenge when you attend school, work, and have a family life.

With so much going on during this special time of year, how can you ensure everything gets done without you becoming stressed and overwhelmed?

Read on as we share our top tips with you for balancing school, work, and life during the holidays!

Tip #1 – Stay Organized

The key to getting everything on your list done during the holiday season is to stay organized. The best way to do this is to use your calendar to organize everything you need to do. If using a digital calendar like Google Calendar, you can also set alerts to be notified when it’s time to do something you scheduled.

Start by adding all your school information to your calendar, including your class schedule, due dates, and exam dates. If you know you will need to study for an exam, block off time on your calendar to get it done. Now add your work schedule, family activities, and events you will be attending to your calendar.

Once you have everything added, you’ll have a better idea of when and how you can get everything done. If you are overbooked, you may need to remove something or change your commitments.

Tip #2 – Use Time Management

Practicing good time management is the secret for balancing school, work, and life during the holidays. When setting aside time to get specific things done, be realistic about how much time it will take to complete and ensure you have given yourself enough time.

Don’t over book yourself and commit to too many things, as this will cause unnecessary stress and leave you feeling overwhelmed and exhausted.

Prioritize your school, work, and family activities that need to get done. Once you’ve done this, if you need to remove something from your schedule, you can take out a lower priority item and still get the important stuff completed.

Tip #3 – Get Ahead

Since the holidays are such a busy time, try to get ahead as much as possible, so you have more time for holiday fun. Get ahead of schoolwork like projects and assignments, and work ahead at your job as much as you can.

For example, if you have a project at work that’s due right before Christmas, try to get it done early so you’re not stressed about trying to finish it right before the due date. Definitely do not procrastinate and wait until the last minute to get something done because the quality of your work may not be as high, and you can become easily stressed and irritated.

Start your Christmas shopping early so you’re not running around looking for gifts on Christmas Eve. Remember to allow extra time when ordering gifts online, because shipping always takes longer during the holidays.

Tip #4 – Practice Self-Care

Now that you’re organized, using good time management, and getting ahead, it’s time to practice some self-care. The holidays are meant to be a joyful time with family and friends, so keep this in mind when you feel overwhelmed.

Getting enough sleep and eating healthy are two great ways to practice self-care during the holidays. You may be tempted to sleep less to get things done, but there are many scientific studies that show not getting enough sleep is bad for your health and productivity. When surrounded by so much food and sweets during the holidays, it can be easy to eat whatever is available, instead of eating healthily. Try to eat healthily to keep your energy up during this busy time!

Make time for yourself to relax and recharge during the busy holiday season. Schedule your self-care time on your calendar if you need to. It can seem counterproductive to do nothing, but you will feel much better after recharging your energy. Remember, you can always say “no” if you’re feeling overwhelmed.
