Medical Technology Certificates

CommEdBanner

Bunker Hill Community College Division of Workforce and Economic Development is offering two value-added medical certifications.

While these programs are intended to add value certifications to a licensed CNA or CNA student, they can be taken independently. We recommend students take EKG + Phlebotomy together to maximize career opportunities. Please contact Jack Chan at jchan@bhcc.edu if you have questions about eligibility or enrollment. Both the Phlebotomy and EKG Technician programs are TOP and MassHire approved. They also qualify for the Rapid Recovery & Reemployment (R3) grant funds. To determine if you qualify for R3 funds, please contact commed@bhcc.edu and someone will contact you to determine your eligibility for financial assistance.

This program prepares you to collect blood and other specimens from clients for laboratory analysis. The course covers process and procedures; safety protocols, quality assurance and precautions; venipuncture skills; terminology; and related anatomy and physiology.

The program includes a clinical externship opportunity to learn the profession in the field. You will have to request an externship placement near the end of your course to participate. After completing the program, you’ll be able to sit for the NWCA exam, which is included in your tuition.

This 90-hour hybrid course option allows you to take the "classroom" portion remotely via pre-recorded sessions. You will have access to online course support, if needed. Most students will complete their certification in 8-16 weeks. Although listed as Asynchronous (self-study), an instructor will be assigned to teach the class once enrollment reaches six or more students. Should this happen, classes will meet over Zoom Tuesdays and Thursdays for an hour to an hour and a half between 6 pm – 9:30 pm. These Zoom sessions are not mandatory, but it will be beneficial to your studies if you want to participate. You will still maintain your self-study schedule and need to complete all of the online quizzes and final to successfully complete the class.

With six or more students, in-person labs will take place on campus near the end of the program. There are a total of four lab sessions with each session being 3.5 hours in duration. You will receive communication about in-person labs if they are going to be offered. For the in-person lab experience at the main campus, students are responsible for buying a daily parking permit to park their vehicle on campus. The daily rate is $10. Students must only park in Lots 1 or 2. Go to the APP store using your mobile phone and search for ParkMobile. Download the free ParkMobile app and enter Zone # 5850 to buy the permit. Students must use their BHCC email to buy the permit. If your lab is held at the Chelsea campus, do not use the ParkMobile app. Specific parking instructions for the Chelsea campus will be emailed to you.

NOTE: In-person labs may be cancelled if COVID-19 regulations restrict in-person learning.

Once you register and pay, you will receive your course start-up instructions and e-book within ten days of the listed course start date. You may begin the online course as soon as you have received your materials. Should there be an instructor assigned to your cohort, you will receive instructions and a link to join the Zoom sessions.

Once you complete the program you can email learner support to let them know and they will give you the NWCA voucher along with directions on how to complete it.
