I'm fairly new to AZ, I've been here a little over a year and FINALLY transferred my CNA license over, now I'm looking into PCT training. There are a few schools
that offer it near me (I'm in Mesa, closer to Tempe...pretty much right next to the Banner Hospital on Dobson and Southern) and I was wondering if anyone has any opinions on them? I read the google reviews on a few of them and they have mostly good reviews, but I'm always kinda skeptical if they were paid ones or not, but anyways here are the ones i'm considering:
Pima Medical Institute:
Great reviews all around, but for PCT training it's $11,000 and an 8 month program, but the offer evening classes.
East Valley Medical College:
Also great reviews, but mostly for their CNA program. $2,500 I think and it's 11 weeks. They only offer day classes though, which might not work for me.
Providence Training Institute:
Has about 3 good reviews on Google, but I saw a couple on Yelp that said it was a bad school...that kinda made me worry...but it's one of the cheapest at $1,950 and they offer weekend classes which would be good for me. This one is also the shortest, I believe it's about 8 weeks long.
I also saw that Brookline College
has the program but they haven't gotten back to me with prices or classes length etc. but I saw they have a lot of mixed reviews.
If anyone has any input on these or if there is another way to become a PCT please let me know! ALSO Class lengths...anyone know why it seems like all these are different? Does that matter? I've heard that once you ave your CNA you don't need much else to get your PCT, buuuut why is Pima 8 months long while the others are like 2-3 months. Any and all input/info/advice etc will be most helpful!!! <3
