Healthcare Pathway - Patient Care Technician Training Program

In the Spring Semester, Passaic Valley will be providing the following pathways for students to earn career certifications through coursework completed at the high school level. Non-credit bearing, these courses are designed to enhance a student’s resume and offer an opportunity for students to gain entry directly into the workforce. Participating students will need to have met their graduation requirements and be able to dedicate two periods in the second half of the year to these certification courses. These courses have been approved by the Board of Education and as a result a small scholarship may be available to help defray the cost of tuition. Additionally, payment plans will be available directly through William Paterson University.
