SVI to launch new certificate program thanks to HEET grant

Seattle Vocational Institute recently received a Hospital Employee Education and Training (HEET) grant for over $250,000 from the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges. The grant will allow SVI to expand training programs that help healthcare workers to advance their careers while meeting the changing workforce needs of the region’s healthcare system. Thanks to the funding, SVI will develop a new Patient Care Technician certificate, which will help fill a need in local hospitals. The training provides an opportunity for individuals to enter the healthcare workforce with a broad skillset applicable across several job titles in the hospital setting.
