Upon graduation from our program, you will receive your U.S. Career Institute Certificate of Completion attesting to your accomplishment. Patient Care Technicians do not typically need to sit for an additional certification exam. Employers in this field do not typically require certification; however, if you choose to seek certification, U.S. Career Institute’s Patient Care Technician program prepares you to sit for the Certified Patient Care Technician Certification administered by the National Healthcareer Association (NHA). In addition to your training from USCI we strongly recommend purchasing the NHA exam prep materials prior to taking the exam.
A career in this field may require you to meet certain licensing, training, and other requirements that can vary by vocation and state. You should check with your state, local government and/or licensing board to find out which requirements may be applicable in your state
