From our students...

The small class sizes are great as well as the evening times. I would absolutely recommend EGTC – it offers a great family, school and work balance.

From our teachers...

I started the Phlebotomy Program here 15 years ago. Phlebotomy is a great field that can open many doors; new opportunities can arise depending on how far a student wants to extend themselves.
