The objective of the PCT program is to prepare students for entry-level patient care technician jobs as well as equip them with the skills and knowledge required to assist in direct patient care.
The Patient Care Technician program is taught using a hybrid learning environment. All hybrid courses will utilize online and in-person instruction. Lectures may be offered on campus or remotely via a Learning Management System (LMS). Laboratory classes and practical training will be held on campus or at a clinical site.
Online classes will be taught synchronously. Synchronous instruction is real-time instruction that requires students to attend classes at scheduled times.
In the end, this course will provide the student with hands-on experience to practice the skills learned in a long-term care center in the observation of a clinical instructor. Externships allow students to develop skills and allow them to make connections with working professionals.
AIHT has clinical affiliations with numerous healthcare facilities where students will be placed at one or more of these affiliated sites and must complete their clinical hours based on the schedule provided by the school. Students are not permitted to begin the internship until all required classroom and lab hours are completed.
