Welcome to a new an exciting career. You have made an excellent choice. The PCT course as you know it, was started in 1998, by Theresa Adderley who at that time saw a continuous need for a change agent that can muti-task in the Bahamian health care environment. Since, then we have trained hundreds of PCTs who are now working in hospitals, clinics, doctors offices and in private homes.
The mission of this program is guided by the thought that if we can take our cars to certified mechanics, why we are entrusting our bodies and love ones to untrained persons. You are here just to do that, to fill the knowledge gap and provide safe health care to others who need it. We do encourage each of our students to pursue a career in nursing, as this is the ultimate goal.
The cost of the program is $975.00 inclusive of the PCT text book. You can purchase a blood pressure cuff from EATC for an additional $50.00. At the time of registration, you are required to pay $325.00, the balance of $650.00 can paid over the 8 weeks period. This method ensures your seat. Space is limited, however you may pay a non-refundable $50.00 seat fee and the balance of $275.00 before the class starts.
Classes are held every Tuesday and Thursday from 6 pm. – 9pm.
