At PTS, we understand that each person has a unique set of circumstances, and we want students to find a payment option that works for them!
Our payment plan works by requiring ONLY the deposit to register and secure a seat in class. Students will then have from the day they pay the deposit up until halfway through their class to pay their remaining balance.
We offer our students the freedom to decide when they would like to make payments. Payments can be made conveniently online with any major credit card at any time through the Student Portal, or over the phone with Student Services.
Financial Aid and Government Funds
Because we are a private institution, we DO NOT accept financial aid, however, we DO accept vouchers from third-party payers who are willing to pay for private education.
PHLEBOTOMY CLINICAL EXTERNSHIP WITH PTS:
In the State of California, the California Department of Public Health requires every person wanting to become a licensed CPT1 Phlebotomist to perform a forty (40) hour volunteer externship at a state licensed and LFS approved facility as part of their education.
After you complete the Didactic portion of your education, provide proof of your NHA passing exam score, and execute the required Code of Ethics and other compliance documents, you will be cleared to be scheduled for your clinical externship. The externship team will then reach out to you to work out the details.
Phlebotomy Training Specialists (PTS) already has hundreds of approved sites and working agreements with approved sites all throughout the State of California to accommodate the state externship requirement.
Every Externship environment will vary in type and experience. You will serve a minimum of forty (40) hours in a clinical setting. The experience should include the performance of venipunctures, skin punctures, observation of arterial punctures and the completion of the California Statement of Phlebotomy Practical Training signed by an MD, DO, PA, RN, CLB, CLS, or CPT.
Once all required documents are uploaded into your portal, PTS will work to find you an Externship.
