But now reading this forum it seems PCT's do more "extra's" than just EKG and Phleb so now I'm wondering if it would be better for me in the long run to invest in a PCT course after all.

- Nov 4, '10 by Missy77A PCT is a CNA with EKG and Phleb training. Do you have a CNA license? If so, then you are technically a PCT. However some places may require PCT's to be certified and most get this through NHA-http://www.nhanow.com/patient_care.html. I don't think this matters as long as you have your CNA license, EKG and Phleb skills you should be fine.
