Arizona Patient Care Technician Training

The Arizona Patient Care Technician training prepares students to practice in primary healthcare settings that provide ongoing, comprehensive care such as in a hospital setting.  The duties may include performing EKGs, and providing a more in-depth assistance to patients as directed by the medical staff.

Students attending training for PCTs will gain a solid foundation in clinical and laboratory practices that will address the broader healthcare needs of patients. The Arizona patient care technician training provides an in-depth knowledge and clinical experiences in areas such as: CNA advanced nursing abilities, phlebotomy skills and performing Electrocardiograms.

In most Arizona patient care technician schools upon graduation students will become duel certified nationally as a Patient Care Technician which is through the National Health career Association (NHA) and as a Cardiographic Technician (CCT) through the Cardiovascular Credentialing International Registry.  This enables students to have two different career paths.

  • High School Diploma, G.E.D
  • Arizona Nursing Assistant certification
  • Students will be obliged to complete the Health Declaration and have all required immunizations.
  • Current CPR/First Aid
