Big Apple Training Offers Phlebotomy, EKG Technician, & Home Health Aide Training, White Plains, New York

For over 20 years Big Apple Training has provided health education courses for individuals looking to enter the healthcare field. Offering everything from home health aide training to a medical billing and coding course, this White Plains health school has a variety of programs to choose from. If you’re looking for something more hands-on, they also offer phlebotomy and EKG technician courses that lead to professional certification.

As a trained phlebotomist, you’ll draw blood samples from patients to be sent for testing and analysis. With courses involving both classroom and clinical study, you’ll be trained on how to properly collect blood samples, locate viable veins, and maintain proper hygiene. This career path has a lot of growth potential over the next few years and offers opportunities to work in hospitals, medical offices, and laboratories.

An EKG technician, or electrocardiographic technician, performs cardiac tests on patients in hospitals and medical offices. For this test, an EKG technician places electrodes on a patient’s chest, arms, and legs to measure the electrical activity of the heart. At Big Apple Training, you’ll be trained to administer this test on patients with cardiovascular problems or on those who need an "all-clear" before a major surgery. As part of your program, you may also opt for more advanced training so you can administer other tests like stress tests and Holter monitoring.

To start your career as a phlebotomist or EKG technician, call Big Apple Training at (914) 437-7373. Visit them online to see a full list of courses available, including CNA training classes.
