A Note on Our Accelerated Schedule 

Central Penn College operates on a year-round schedule of quarterly, 11-week terms. We’re the only college or university in the capital region that operates on such an accelerated schedule. 

Why do we do it? Because we know that working adults are hungry for a career change and career growth, and Central Penn is here to make that happen through our accelerated schedule. 

A Mix of Online & In-Person Classes 

Did you know that more than half of the six courses in the Phlebotomy Technician Certificate program are online? Four of the classes are offered online, which offers flexibility and convenience to students who are working or who are taking care of children or older parents.  

“Many of our students are working adults who are in the process of changing careers,” said Nikki Marhekfa, Program Director of Medical Assisting at the college. “We recognize that this program is not the only thing that they have going on in their lives. By offering four courses in an online format, students are better able to meet the demands of the program.” The two in-person classes involve learning how to perform the medical procedures required of a Phlebotomy Technician.
