Testimonials

I found that I love a challenge, and this class challenged me by getting me to step out of my comfort zone and learn something other than Home Health Aide. I’ve impressed myself with the outcome because, once again, I’ve completed something.

Larock Academy and Ms. Kocina were truly a blessing with their education and professionalism. I enjoyed being here and hope to continue expanding my education in the near future.

When I made the choice to change careers I was all over the internet looking for schools and the one that stood out for me, and the one I kept coming back to was Larock Healthcare Academy.

When I looked at the website, I saw how diverse the options were for a career change and the many options for class times made my decision easy. Already being a busy professional, I appreciated that fact above all others.

I started classes for phlebotomy on the weekends and it was a perfect fit. I loved the class size and the instruction was fun and informative. Being an older student, I appreciated the way the information was delivered and the hands-on aspect of the class. All relevant information was given in such a way as to be easy to understand and absorb. We drew blood the first day and I was hooked! We also received instruction on writing resumes, which for me was a real bonus as I have been in the job market for many years and was able to produce a resume that was concise and not scattered.

After taking the National Phlebotomy exam, I began to send my resume out, and within 2 months, I had a job. I work at ExamOne (Quest Diagnostics) as a Paramedical Examiner and I love it. The education I received at Larock enabled me to find a job and excel at it.

I would recommend Larock (and have) to anyone looking to change careers. The benefits for me have been amazing and I couldn’t be happier with my overall experience.

In the early 90’s I attended a school for Medical Assisting which including a brief introduction to Phlebotomy. My initial career and experience in the Phlebotomy field was short-lived to say the least. 20 years later, after an exhausting career in a different part of the healthcare field, my body was worn out and it was time for a change. I initially found Larock Healthcare Academy in an online search for Phlebotomy schools and decided to inquire about the program. The fact that the staff was so knowledgeable and that the class was also reasonably priced and they offered flexible payment plans aided in my decision to ultimately attend Larock.

Once I began classes, I was excited from day one. My instructor, Cheryl, covered everything essential to becoming a good Phlebotomist; not only did we learn the skill itself, but the course focused on the Order of Draw, special handling procedures, the tubes and additives, the legal aspect of the profession, and how to maintain professionalism in the field in general. Most of these things weren’t even covered when I first learned about Phlebotomy 20 years before, but after attending Larock I now understand that, as a Phlebotomist, this information is essential to being successful in the field. Choosing Larock Academy helped prepare me for my current job through MedLab which I was able to obtain within a month of graduation. At the end of the day Larock Academy not only gives you the tools that you need to be successful, but they become like family!

Dear Administrator,

I very much appreciate everything you and the Academy have done for me. When I first met with you to take this new journey into healthcare, we had talked about the fears and concerns I had, and you listened and you and the instructors were there to lead me and teach me what I needed to know to become a great STNA. This Academy is so amazing and fun I will never forget the experience I learned here. Larock Academy has provided me with an excellent education which is tailored to the needs of my success. You have succeeded in creating training courses which are specific and relevant to an individual’s particular need. Your instructors facilitate in a way which allows attendees to interact, while learning skills and knowledge which can be applied to their individual roles. Your instructors have also provided excellent 1-1 specific and individually tailored training and coaching; the course was extremely well presented. Great course, excellent instructors and I will definitely be recommending it to others as well as family and friends. It has provided me with the perfect grounding and structure to achieving and delivering the best I can be. It gave me a far greater grasp on ‘how to get the best possible impact’. The skills I learned will be invaluable to me.

Because of this Academy and the wonderful instructors, I have a wonderful career in a Hospital doing what I love to do!

Thank you.

Larock Academy has changed me as a person. I have a whole new outlook on life just from being here the 7 weeks that I have. I didn’t think that I would finish because, in the past, I have set goals and it has been very difficult to achieve them. When I say I have changed, just trying to make it to school on Tuesday and Thursday by 9am, taking care of my son (who is my first priority), and also working full-time, was a lot for one person considering that I am only 24 years old.

I can say this program has changed me considerably. I always wanted to go to school and take courses in the medical field, and I felt like this was a great way to start. These 7 weeks went by kind of fast, but I’ve learned so much. My teacher stated that we as students would “hear her in our heads” talking to us and that is one thing that I will leave here with.

I have really enjoyed myself here, in addition to my peers and the atmosphere here at Larock. I am definitely considering furthering my education now. I thought I would stop here, but I had a change of heart. So by saying that, I will definitely be back!

I thank everyone for helping me to start a career for myself that I always dreamed of!
