Program Details

This self-paced online program prepares you for three national certifications in medical assisting, electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) administration, and phlebotomy.

First, you'll tackle our clinical medical assisting course. Topics covered include (but are not limited to) data collection and recording, measurement of vital signs, assisting with physical examinations, administering medications, maintaining clinical equipment, and more.

The EKG technician course focuses on cardiovascular anatomy and physiology, how to  perform a 12-lead EKG test, and identification of normal and abnormal EKG results.

Our phlebotomy course prepares you to collect blood specimens for lab analysis. You'll become familiar with all aspects of blood collection and review the skills needed to perform venipunctures safely.

Vouchers for the following certifications are included with this program: Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA), Certified EKG Technician (CET), and Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT). We'll also provide online study guides and practice exams to help you get ready to earn certification.

Please note, the NHA has eligibility requirements to sit for their exams. All three certification exams require a high school diploma or the equivalent, as well as successful completion of a program like ours. To sit for the CPT exam, you also need work experience that includes performing at least 30 successful venipuntures and 10 successful capillary sticks on live individuals. Similarly, sitting for the CET exam requires at least 10 successful EKGs on live individuals. Mannequins are not accepted for the experience requirements in either case.

One way to fulfill your experience requirements is through this program's optional unpaid clinical externship with a local healthcare provider. You're eligible once you've passed a background check and drug screening, in addition to earning 85% or better on at least 50 hours of coursework. Externship sites may also require proof of immunizations, a 2-step TB test, flu shot, and CPR certification. Any fees associated with externship eligibility are your responsibility.

Externships include 180 hours of medical assisting experience, 40 hours of phlebotomy, and 40 hours of EKG technician experience. Medical assisting externships typically present opportunities to earn phlebotomy and EKG experience, but in cases where this is not possible, our externship coordinator will support students in their efforts to locate standalone Phlebotomy and EKG sites.
