YOU CAN GO TO A TRAINING BUSSINESS SCHOOL ALL YOU NEED IS YOUR HIGH SCHOOL DEGREE OR YOUR GED AND THE MONEY OR TO TAKE OUT LOANS OR MAYBE FINANCIAL AID WILL PAY FOR SOME. ANYWAY LOOK FOR THE SCHOOLS OF MEDICAL TRAINING SCHOOL...

you would first seek training. not just any training but accredited training. you don't want to go through the hassel of learning and paying a school a lot of money and they are not accredited. next look at their percentage of students actually passing the PCT national exam. this would be a huge reflection on the teaching staff and administrators. then finally look at the percentage rate of hire. this will also tell you how dedicated that particular institution is when it comes to finding you a job in that particular field. GOOD LUCK

This is a growing field and yet I have found it very difficult to find a reputable institution to attend for hemodialysis technician training in Ohio. Owens community college, the largest community college in northwest Ohio is considering offering a hemodialysis program but will need a minimum level of interest before they will offer the program. Is anyone else interested in Hemodialysis technician training in Ohio?
