Explore Our Program

To enroll in fall classes, the first thing you need to do is choose which healthcare training program works best for you. To make this decision easier, there are a few questions you can ask yourself: do I want to work in a medical office, do I want to work with patients directly, and are there any specific skills I want to learn?
How to Enroll for Fall Classes

For students who want to learn how to draw blood, our Phlebotomy Technician program may be the right choice for you. As a phlebotomist, you will draw blood to collect medical specimens that help doctors gain insight into a patient’s health. While enrolled in their phlebotomy classes, students will learn procedures for specimen collection, skin puncture techniques, basic phlebotomy skills, and how to use specimen collection equipment correctly. The phlebotomy training program prepares students for the Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT)* exam, which sets phlebotomy students up for success in their future careers.

If you want to learn how to perform an electrocardiogram, our EKG Technician program may be the better choice for you. As an EKG technician, you will measure heart rhythms that provide critical information on heart health and potential heart conditions. As a student in EKG classes, you will learn things like identifying normal and abnormal EKG recordings, using a heart monitor, describing the normal physiology of cardiac conduction, and distinguishing between basic dysrhythmias. While enrolled in the EKG program, students prepare to sit for the Certified EKG Technician (CET)* exam.

For students who want to learn a combination of both phlebotomy and EKG skills, our Cardio Phlebotomy program may work best for you. As a cardio phlebotomy technician, you have the opportunity to work directly with patients, helping doctors to provide excellent care. As students complete their cardio phlebotomy classes, they are trained in various areas, including performing EKGs, drawing blood, completing venipuncture procedures, controlling infections, and practicing fundamental patient care. The cardio phlebotomy program prepares students for professional healthcare certifications, including Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT)* and Certified EKG Technician (CET)*.

If you want to learn various skills that train you to work in a medical office, our Medical Office Specialist program may be the right decision for you. Medical office professionals have the opportunity to perform both administrative tasks and care for patients while on the job. Students enrolled in medical office classes will learn various skills, including recording vital signs, patient intake, charting, collection of laboratory specimens, injections, suture removal, and basic wound care. While in the medical office program, students prepare for healthcare certifications including Certified Medical Administrative Assistant*, Certified Billing and Coding Specialist*, and Certified Electronic Health Records Specialist*.

The Benefits of Choosing a Small School

With a clear idea of the career path you want to take, it’s time to make that idea come to life. For most career opportunities, you will need formal training to be eligible for jobs in the career field of your choice.

There are many options to attend school and complete a career training program to help you on your new journey. You could select a larger university, try an online college option, or attend a small school. Each option will offer a different learning experience for students.

For a lot of people, attending a small school can make a big difference in their success story, during their career training program, and after graduation. Keep reading to find out more, as we share the benefits of selecting a small-school environment to get the training you need in preparation for your awesome career path.

Small Class Sizes

A direct benefit of being in a small-school environment is linked to the class sizes. On average, there are fewer students in each class in a small-school setting. This means there won’t be large lecture halls filled with 300+ people just listening to the lecturer talk.

When you attend a smaller school, it allows you to connect more with your instructors and classmates, and you will not be just seen as another number in the crowd. People will actually know your name and get to know you on a more personal level.

If you select a career training program that prepares you to work in a certain field, such as the Medical Office Specialist program here at Boardman Training Center, you will learn hands-on skills that will be beneficial to you as you begin working in your new career. The more practice you get with these hands-on skills, the better you will get at them.

Students who choose Boardman Training Center to train for a new career will also prepare to sit for professional medical certifications* while in their healthcare training program.

Personalized Attention

In addition to enjoying smaller classes, another great benefit of completing your career training at a small school, is that you will get personalized attention, which will help you do your best as you complete your program.

In a large university setting, you would be in classes with hundreds of people, and would get very limited time to interact with your instructors, because there isn’t enough time for professors to connect with every student. On the other hand, a small-school setting where teachers have more time for each student, allows you to receive the one-on-one interaction you need to excel in your classes.

At a small school, teachers are also more available outside the classroom, which means you will get direct assistance and help when you need it.

At Boardman Training Center, we offer a small-school environment designed to help you every step of the way. You’ll be part of our BTC family that engages you with personalized attention, while helping you reach your career goals. With our WE CARE approach to career training, your teachers will support and encourage you along your journey to a new career.

Student Support

As a student in a small-school environment, an additional benefit you will enjoy is the opportunity to get further assistance and support as needed while completing your career training classes. At Boardman Training Center, we provide academic support like tutoring and study services that will help you in your healthcare classes.

Other services provided in addition to great academic support, are the career services offered that help you get a head start in the job application process to begin your new career. Helping students create resumes and cover letters are just one example of the valuable career services offered here at Boardman Training Center.

Students who choose a small-school learning environment will have lots of opportunities to create lasting relationships with their classmates and instructors, on a personal and professional level. This gives you a stronger support system as you train and prepare for your new career path. Smaller schools also give students the option to be closer to home and get support from family and friends, which can be extremely helpful during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Join the Boardman Family

If you’re searching for a small school to help you succeed on your path to a new healthcare career, then Boardman Training Center could be a great fit for you.
