Patient Care Technician Certificates

Beginning Spring 2021, we will no longer allow new students to declare the Patient Care Technician Certificate, or the Electrocardiogram Certificate, or the Health Care Customer Services Basics Certificate.

Students already declared in any of these certificates should contact their Pathways Advisor or Program Director on their campus to develop a teach-out plan for completion of required coursework. Please make arrangements to touch base with your Advisor and/or Program Director as soon as possible. All students must complete teach-out plans prior Spring 2023.
