3 Reasons to Use MyCAA for Cardio-Phlebotomy Courses - MedCerts

Is Short-Term Online Career Training Right for You?

ATTN Military Spouses: For a limited time, the Department of Defense has expanded eligibility for My Career Advancement Account (MyCAA) to the first 1,250 approved applicants in the ranks of E-6 and O-3. MedCerts is an approved school for the MyCAA scholarship.

As a military spouse, your career needs are unique. You need something that will make a real difference in the world, and you need to be able to take your career anywhere.

Healthcare is a great solution to both needs. Whether you prefer to work with patients or in a lab setting, a Cardio-Phlebotomy Technician program from MedCerts can get you the qualifications that will get you the job. The cost is just $3,750, but you may pay nothing out of pocket if you're a military spouse eligible for MyCAA funding.

1. Prepare for an In-Demand Career in Weeks, Not Years

As a Cardio-Phlebotomy Technician student, you'll receive a thorough education in anatomy and medical terminology. This is your base to go on and develop two highly in-demand skill sets, phlebotomy (blood drawing) and electrocardiography (heart rhythm testing).

You'll have the chance to do all of this in as little as 15 weeks, no matter where you are. Compare that to an associate's degree, which can take you two years or longer.

You don't even have to travel to a classroom. MedCerts' courses are fully online, so you can complete your job training no matter where you are.

2. Qualify for In-Demand Certifications
