The On-Line Dialysis Technician Program provides students with the knowledge and skills needed to perform the duties required of Dialysis Technicians. Under the supervision of physicians and registered nurses, Dialysis Technicians operate kidney dialysis machines, prepare dialyzer reprocessing and delivery systems as well as maintain and repair equipment. Furthermore, technicians work with patients during dialysis procedures and monitor and record vital signs as well as administer local anesthetics and drugs as needed. Additionally, they may also be involved in the training of patients for at-home dialysis treatment and providing them with the emotional support they need for self-care.
Students have up to 6 months to complete the self-directed, On-Line program. Textbooks are mailed to the student’s address.
You may enroll in and start the On-Line Programs at any time.
There are no refunds offered for the On-Line Programs.

Dialysis technicians and aides should have a high school diploma or GED.
This program is designed to cover the key objectives of the leading dialysis technician certification
exams. Although some students do immediately pursue certain certifications, most national exams
require job experience for formal dialysis technician certification.
