Sarah chose to attend Boardman Training Center after discovering our programs online. After her first visit to the campus, she knew that BTC was the right place for her to pursue her education.

Sarah is eager to start her career as a phlebotomist and is confident that Boardman Training Center has prepared her for the future. “[BTC is] preparing me with the knowledge I’ll need to get my career started,” she said.

In five years, she hopes to thrive in a career that provides financial stability and the possibility to further her education. “I can always come back [to BTC] to learn more,” Sarah said. 

When asked what her favorite part about being a Boardman Training Center student is, Sarah’s answer was one that BTC often hears: “learning new things and spending time with the amazing faculty and classmates.”

Like Sarah, many Boardman Training Center students boast that smaller class sizes, hands-on training, and a welcoming atmosphere make BTC stand out from other training centers. Our instructors take time to get to know each student individually to help them learn in a way that works best for them. 

Sarah recommends Boardman Training Center’s Phlebotomy program to anyone seeking a healthcare career. “I think it’s a great program that anyone can benefit from,” she said.
