Attention: PCT candidates:

If you do not already have a CNA certificate from ABC or another school, see “Advanced Nurse Aide” on this page and enroll in that program, and see that price and schedule listing for PCT certification.

If you DO already have a CNA certificate from ABC or another school, you need only enroll in the “EKG/Phlebotomy” program for PCT certification (see the “EKG/Phlebotomy” page for  price and schedule listing.)

ABC Training Center is approved by the NY State Department of Education to issue a Patient Care Certificate to certified nursing assistant (CNA) graduates from any school in the State. The CNA graduates will present their certificates of completion and take the EKG/Phlebotomy program at ABC Training Center. ABC will then issue the patient care technician (PCT) certificate at the successful completion of the training program. Subsequently, PCT graduates will be allowed to take the National Health Career Certification exam at ABC and will be allowed to attend the review class for this exam at no charge. National certification is a feather in the cap of a PCT training program graduate that puts you one step ahead of the pack. Our experience has shown us that candidates that have passed the certification exam and who interview at a hospital or other medical facility usually get preference over non-certified candidates. So if you are thinking of gaining new skills to create greater job opportunities, more income, and more security for you and your family, look no further than ABC’s new, approved patient care technician (PCT) training program in NYC.
