At Phlebotomy Career Training, we ensure our students have access to the best standards in national testing for our certified online courses. Here is a Q&A on why our students are finding work with the certifications from our national testing partners.
Q & A: What is the NCCA accreditation and why is it important for our students?
1. What is the NCCA? NCCA stands for National Commission for Certifying Agencies. Established in 1987 by the Institute for Credentialing Excellence, the NCCA is an independent, non-governmental agency that sets the standard for professional certification programs via NCCA accreditation. Their focus is to ensure programs follow the health, welfare, and safety standards to provide quality programs to the public. Phlebotomy Career Training’s Testing Partners make obtaining NCCA accredited Certificates easy (as well as the fact that the cost of the exam is included in the tuition, so there is no additional testing fee!). This makes PCT a student favorite!
2. Why is the NCCA accreditation important and does it affect me? The NCCA accreditation is the leading standard for certification programs. It enhances trust in
the certification to ensure the employee is current and competent in the field they have chosen.
3. How does the NCCA accreditation help me as a personal trainer? Being a medical professional certified with an NCCA accreditation sets you apart as a qualified medical professional associated with other professions and occupations including nurses, physical therapist, financial professionals, respiratory therapist, counselors, emergency technicians and more. Having the NCCA accredited certification ensures employers that you have the highest level of credibility for training clients. In many cases employers will increase your pay to acknowledge this additional credential.
