Our Med Tech training is Florida Department of Elder Affairs compliant and certifies you to assist residents with self-administered medications.

Topics covered include:
Assisting with prescription and OTC medications
Assisting with insulin pens
Assisting with nebulizers
Application and removal of anti-embolism hosiery
Assisting with CPAP machines
Assisting with colostomy bags
Typically, Med Techs work for residential assisted living facilities (ALFs) or certified home health agencies. They may work under the direct supervision of medical professionals, usually registered nurses. They keep records of services performed and of clients’ conditions and progress.
Our Med Tech training will give you the training and certification necessary to safely assist with medications for residents or clients while they reside in a residential facility or comfort of their home.
