Classes will be conducted by trained educators who have experience in the Health Industry. Classes will be held on a weekly basis in accordance with the following schedules:
- Morning schedule: Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
- Evening schedule: Monday to Thursday, 6:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Students who take part in the Phlebotomy and Patient Care Assistant evening schedules should be aware that they will be required to adjust their schedules so as to be able to go on the one week clinical during the morning hours, as externships for students drawing blood cannot be done in the evening hours.
In addition, the P.C.A. program may not necessarily be completely consecutive, as there may be a short break between the Phlebotomy/ EKG portions of the course. Students should be prepared for this.
FCFTI will try to accommodate a student who is unable to complete their training fully within the above schedule. The student will possibly be allowed to take home the lesson plan to study and then come in to be tested. Please speak to the Instructor or Administrator regarding the possibility of this arrangement.
