Patient Care Specialist Program (PCS)
Patient Care Technician Program (PCT)
Nurse Aide / Assistant Program (CNA)
Throughout our history, NAT has played an important role in providing NYC with Nursing support and Allied Healthcare professionals. We have also continuously evolved to meet the needs of the employers, clients, corporate organizations and students who have partnered and also became affiliated with us.
- 1998 – New Age Training was established and began operating under this name. Prior to that, in the early 90s, NAT did business under the name Perfect Knowledge, but at that time the school provided instruction in the IT field with classes such as Project Development, Business Management and Oracle.
- 2001 – Became Licensed by the NYS Education Department (NYSED) to be a NYS training provider.
- 2005 – Accredited by Accrediting Council for Continuing Education & Training (ACCET)
- 2007 – Based on 8th Avenue at the time, NAT’s first healthcare program is implemented. Nurse Aides (CNAs) become the vast majority at the school as we are approved to accept vouchers from WF1 and VESID.
- 2009 – Patient Care Technicians (PCTs) are in high demand so we developed a hybrid program called Nurse Aid Advanced which allows students to take both the CNA and PCT courses along with all of the necessary certifications.
- 2010 – Allied health becomes more of a focus and the Medical Assistant (MA) program is introduced.
- 2016 – Clinical Medical Assistant (CMA) and Patient Care Specialist (PCS) programs are approved and offered.
- 2017 – Home Health Aide (HHA) and Dialysis Technician (DT) programs are approved and offered.
