I am interested in getting more certifications and learning more about the medical field, expanding my knowledge and skills both at the same time.

    Hello, and thank you for the great question. On that note I have some great news. Although the certifications which you will receive from our school are based on the State of MI, we are accredited by two national accrediting bodies, AMCA and the NCCT. which will allow you to work in all 50 states.

    thanks

  20. Hello.
    I am a certified Patient Care Tech/MA/Phlebotomist in central Ohio, and very interested in your IV Tech Cert program. Could you please give me information on your class. Also, needing to know if I could then use my skills for employment in the state of Ohio.
    Thank you for your time,

  21. Hello John;

    Congratulations on your accomplishments! The I.V. Technician certification class is $300 and also includes the National IV Certification Exam. We strongly suggest that you make the journey to take the one day 6 hour class. Prior to class you will want to enroll a few weeks before to complete the online modules, since the entire course is 40 hours. We ask that students complete their 34 online hours prior to coming to class. I cannot speculate whether or not that this certification will give your the authority like a licensed medical professional ie, (para medic, Dr., Nurse) to start I.V.’s. This would be entirely up to your employer.

    hope this helps,
    Nancy Kimmel
