    You don't have to pay 2.5k for PCT program. You need to take separately ECG and Phlebotomy course, to pass National Exams and afterwards, with all 3 certificates (CNA, ECG Tech & Phlebotomy Tech) you are eligible to seat for National PCT Exam (and that would be fourth certificate).

    Technically, you can take CNA, ECG and Phlebotomy at three different schools, and to apply for PCT Exam at fourth
    i see there is a PCT national certification test I need to take, how can you study for that test?

    hey this is not about the LPN program, but it is about CMK. I graduated from a CNA class at harper college and want to be a PCT should I get the EKG certi and the phelbotmy certication at a separate time or pay for a PCT traning at CMK

    magellan is correct. Since you have your CNA certification already. CMK will credit that, all you need to do is take the EKG course and the Phlebotomy course. Once you have all three, you can pay for the NHA testing fee and take that test. Let me know if you need more info

    @ Chris_NS

    - After you are certified CNA, ECG and Phlebotomy Tech, then you can apply for PCT National Exam.
    - NHA = National Healthcareer Association (organization that issues certificates for EKG, Phlebotomy Techs, PCTs...) NHA
    - In the state of Illinois, as far as I know, for PCT positions in most cases only CNA certificate is required, and then you have training for ECG and Phlebotomy when you start (all the people on PCT positions who I know were only CNAs when they started). But, if you already have all these certificates it should be a huge plus, I guess...

    Has anyone gone through this program? How hard is the TABE test that is required? I don't see why that is needed when I already have a bachelors degree.

    If anyone has more info. on this program (that has attended it), I would greatly appreciate it. I know the classes are on the weekends and the cost of the program, I am looking for more detailed information (where you go for clinicals, what time the classes are at, how are you graded, and what is the student to teacher ratio)

    Thanks!
