Earn your Hemodialysis Technician Certification in as little as 9 weeks!

Hemodialysis Technicians work under the direction of nurses and physicians and perform dialysis on patients with acute or chronic kidney failure. These technicians operate dialysis machines that remove waste, salt, and extra water from the patient’s blood while keeping safe levels of certain chemicals. As a dialysis technician, you will prepare patients for dialysis, monitor them, adjust settings on the machine, and perform required procedures upon completion.

As part of the Hemodialysis Technician Program students will complete a clinical course designed to simulate the operations of a renal dialysis unit, and will focus on topics required to pass the CCHT exam. Students will also complete a clinical review and may be chosen for a clinical externship program with an introduction to a real-world clinical setting.
