SMC Course Offerings
Thank you for your interest in our ECG and Phlebotomy Technician training programs. Clinical laboratories, hospitals, doctor's offices, home health care agencies, extended care facilities and paramedical services all use skilled professionals. A successful completion of ABP's approved programs will allow you to apply for and take a national certification examination. Many employers are now requiring a phlebotomist to be certified for employment. With a certification, you can currently work in any state.
The ECG Technician class is held for 7 days, 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM daily. Since this is a focused class, attendance is required each day. If you successfully complete this course, you will receive 4 credit hours from Southwestern Michigan College. The cost of this course is $1000. We pay your tuition to SMC out of what you pay us. The course cost also includes the lab fees, lab supplies and textbook.
