Mid Michigan College has several Short-Term Training opportunities in the healthcare field scheduled in 2019. These six to nine-week trainings prepare trainees to enter high-demand healthcare fields.
Phlebotomy Short-Term Training at Mid prepares trainees for the highest certification available, is one of just three accredited phlebotomy training programs in the State, and costs just $1,400 for nine weeks of training. Compare Mid training costs to competitors who charge nearly $2,000 for an abbreviated eight-week training at a non-accredited facility. This reduced cost lessens barriers to success and allows students to start careers sooner and begin earning increased income faster.
Over the past 11 years, Mid has successfully trained 336 students, achieved a 90% graduation rate, and connected 75% of trainees with careers in phlebotomy. Mid trainees surpass the national average in five of the six ASCP certification areas, and all trainees who attempted certification in 2018 passed the exam.
Phlebotomy Short-Term Training is scheduled to begin May 6, July 29 and October 21 at the Harrison Campus, June 24 and September 9 at the Mt. Pleasant Campus, and June 3 and September 30 in Alpena.
“Surveyed graduates have given our Phlebotomy and CNA Short-Term Trainings a 97% satisfaction rating, something we’re very proud of as an organization,” said Kristine Stevens, Director of Business and Industry Training at Mid Michigan College. “We focus on fostering future success by supporting our students and connecting them to employers.”
Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) Short-Term Training at Mid prepares trainees to provide direct care to patients. Historically, 96% of Mid trainees complete the 120-hours of training successfully with an average score of 95% on their final exam and 80% pass the State certification test on their first attempt.
Furthermore, since Mid’s training consists of 120-hours, trainees have the ability to transfer their certification to over 35 states—an important feature for those who aren’t sure where they may decide to call home. CNA Short-Term Training costs just $1,600, and includes training materials, blood pressure cuff, stethoscope, and wrist watch.
Training costs may be significantly reduced or completely offset through MiWorks! assistance programs. Potential trainees should contact their local MiWorks! to see if they qualify.
CNA Short-Term Training is scheduled to begin June 10 and September 9 at the Harrison Campus, and August 19 and October 28 at the Mt. Pleasant Campus.
