3 Reasons Why Your School Should Partner with AMT to Certify Patient Care Technician (PCT) Students

Are you preparing students for jobs as patient care technicians? Why not offer them a new credential backed by the respected AMT name — the Patient Care Technician (PCT).

This new credential is specifically for those who seek to work in the growing number of jobs for PCTs. As integral members of the healthcare delivery team, PCTs provide basic care for hospital patients or residents of long-term care facilities, such as nursing homes. PCTs have similar duties to nursing assistants, whose job outlook is expected to grow by 17% in the next decade—faster than the average for all occupations. Currently, there are 1.5 million nursing assistant positions in the U.S. 

Partner with AMT. Here’s why: 

  1. Offer students a respected credential that will get them hired. AMT’s industry-recognized reputation is earned by maintaining the highest level of integrity, as rigorous standards are set for exam development, eligibility and testing environments. When students meet the stringent eligibility criteria and pass the exam, it reflects well on your school. 

Employers recognize the AMT name, and some ask for it by name in job descriptions for allied health jobs. As a nationally recognized certifying agency for allied health professionals, AMT has a long history of respected credentialing that shows that a person is competent to start contributing from day one on the job. An AMT credential demonstrates a PCT’s commitment to the highest standards of care.
