The role of a phlebotomy/electrocardiogram (EKG) in health care is important to accurately diagnose and treat patients. Their skill in gathering information is important to physicians, hospitals, clinics, and labs. Our Phlebotomy/EKG Technician Diploma program can provide you with the opportunity to become a candidate in this field.

Graduates of this program can acquire the knowledge and technical skills needed to carry out specific duties that may include performing venipuncture by vacutainer, butterfly, and syringe methods; collecting capillary blood; performing electrocardiography with basic interpretation; and assisting with infection control, minor laboratory testing, medical record documentation, and data entry.

What is Electrocardiography?

An electrocardiogram, or ECG, is just one of the critical care tests that can save many lives each year. ECG Technicians may be the first to spot problems of the heart that might prove to be fatal if not detected through other methods. Electrocardiogram testing is a non-invasive procedure that gives the physician a clearer view of the heart in order to detect abnormalities or irregularities within the chambers, arteries, and ventricles.
What is Phlebotomy?

The main objective of a phlebotomist is to draw blood and obtain specimens promptly, efficiently, and safely from patients and clients.  Conducting routine and diagnostic testing can be the most accurate way to assess, track, and repair illnesses and diseases.  The phlebotomist plays an important role in the safety and well-being of their patients; phlebotomy technicians receive extensive training in the handling of infectious diseases and maintaining a clean and sterile environment.

Program Objectives / Job Opportunities

The ECG/Phlebotomy Technician program teaches the student techniques of performing and practicing Electrocardiograms on various ECG machines including computerized and multi channel.  Venipuncture techniques are taught using vacutainer tubes, butterfly needles and syringe methods.  Students also learn to perform capillary puncture on infants and adults.  Specimen handling, centrifuging and laboratory safety also taught throughout the course.  New Career Training Institutes students have the advantage of working within our clinical laboratories and fully simulated practical rooms which offer a professional learning environment.
