The CATCH (Creating Access to Careers in Health Care) program provides all-expense paid certificate programs for select health care professions at Edmonds and Everett community colleges to low-income adults in Snohomish County to fill critical jobs in health care.
The programs of study include:
- Phlebotomy Technician,
- EKG Technician and Cardiographic Technician,
- Monitor Technician, Nursing Assistant,
- Emergency Medical Technician, and
- Medical Spanish Interpreter (depending on college course and externship availability).
Both college CATCH programs offer these in-demand, all-expense paid, work-ready certificates of completion while also allowing students to meet prerequisite and core course requirements for advanced certificates in, for example, Patient Care Technician at Edmonds Community College and Medical Assistant at Everett Community College. Space in both college CATCH programs is limited.
