Hands-on lab is back in session
Midwest Technical Institute (MTI)’s four campus locations are now open following safety and social distancing practices.
MTI is excited to welcome back students who are ready to begin their hands-on training. After working diligently to coordinate the delivery of education online during COVID-19, MTI is now ready to have students back on campus to receive their hands-on training in the classroom and lab. As always, each campus will follow CDC guidelines to help protect the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff.
As of the July 6th, 2020 start date, students will receive one hundred percent of their education on campus, with the following exceptions:
- East Peoria, IL Campus: Medical Assisting and HVAC/R-MAR programs will continue to be blended online and in-person training. The Basic Nursing Assistant and Phlebotomy Course will resume at a later date.
- Moline, IL Campus: Dental Assisting Program will continue to be blended online and in-person training and the HVAC/R-MAR Program will be online for the first module.
- Springfield, IL Campus: Basic Nursing Assistant (BNA) and Phlebotomy Course—current BNA students will continue their training with a blended online and/or on campus schedule. Enrollment for future BNA and Phlebotomy Courses on campus will resume at a later date.
All staff and students must adhere to safety guidelines on campus, including only entering and exiting the building through designated doors, frequently washing hands with soap and water, using the hand sanitizer and hands-free trash cans readily available throughout the campus, wearing a face covering while at the campus, as well as any required personal protective equipment during lab training, and adhering to social distancing.
MTI is committed to keeping a clean environment and will be disinfecting and cleaning all frequently touched surfaces regularly. MTI takes the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff very seriously, and will continue to follow the guidelines offered by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), as well as those set forth by our campus community, including the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), the Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services (MDHSS), our accrediting agency, the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC), and the county health department guidelines.
