Vol State offers a 12-month technical certificate program that includes classroom and clinical instruction. The goals are to prepare students to work in the field and qualify for national and state examinations.
To prepare, students should take high school classes in biology, chemistry, health and office practices. Applicants need to submit their high school transcripts or G.E.D. scores, ACT or SAT scores if they are less than 21 years old, plus an application to Volunteer State and an application to Allied Health Careers.
