Clarksville, TN – The current economic downturn and layoffs in multiple industries have many people looking for fast career training that can lead them to new, good-paying, rewarding jobs. Allied health care, the largest employment sector in the U.S. today, will only continue to grow as baby boomers age and technology helps people live longer lives.
Austin Peay State University’s Center for Extended and Distance Education, in partnership with Boston Reed College, is pleased to announce that a new allied health care training program will be offered in spring of 2011. This seven-week course provides fast-paced training designed to prepare students for a career as a phlebotomist in that growing health care workforce.
The course is conveniently offered with schedules planned for busy adults. Students will experience a hands-on externship with a local health care facility as part of the training. Textbooks, classroom materials and externship placement are all included in the course fee.
To introduce this new training opportunity, a free one-hour information session will be held from 6:00pm–7:00pm, Thursday, January 13th, 2011, in the McReynolds Building, Room 219. The free information session is open to anyone looking to learn more about opportunities in allied health, inquire about prerequisites, ask questions and get answers.
