    I live in Los Angeles California where can I find a school or college where I can become a Dialysis Technician

  2. Charles,
    Do not waste your money on a technical school for Dialysis training. All dialysis companies will train you on-the-job. All you need is a high school diploma and half a brain. Fresenius & and Da Vita are the two biggest companies and both will provide training. Starting pay is a little low…around $10.00-$12.00 per hour. But if you play you cards right, you can make around $16.00 per hour after your first year as a PCT/CCHT. Also, there are travel companies that send you out on 3 month assignments around the country. I just returned from 3 month is Oahu, Hawaii working as a traveling CCHT for Foundation Medical Staffing. Not only did I get to see the islands, but the pay was much better than the typical dialysis job. A traveler can make between $45,000.00-$55,000.00 annually working as a CCHT. It’s hard job both emotionally and physically. It’s high stress and mentally demanding. But if you can pull it off, its some of the best money you can make without a college degree. Additionally, most companies will help you pay for school if you decide to become and RN or nurse practitioner. It’s not the field I hoped to work in, but if you have children and need a job NOW that pays a living wage, dialysis is a viable option. And the job security is excellent. People with Master’s Degrees are currently lining up to work at Starbucks. But you will always have employment in Dialysis.

  3. :grin:HI Charles, thanks for your advice, I’m looking forward to becoming a dialysis technician.

  4. @Charles, in your message above you said if you play your cards right your salary can go from $10-12 to $16 in a year. Well I am working in a dialysis center as a CCHT technician. I have been there almost 4 months now & I would love to play my cards right because I plan on being here for well over a year. I have a family and a pay increase will be greatly appreciated.

  5. Im sorry the message was for ( DIALYSIS DUDE) not charles, I apalogize.

  6. Im a dialysis technician for fresenius for over 3 years now, You dont need to go to school for this one, they will train you for a month while being payed $12 per hour. Then after you pass the written test they will train you on the floor for 5 months. Job is very rewarding, lots of over time, but you have to love this job to actually enjoy this job. Not only you will have to be good to your coworkers but to your patients as well because if they don’t like you, like for say you are lazy and dont help your coworkers you could lose your job, not only that; words will spread and no dialysis clinic will hire you.

    • I am thinking of taking a dialysis tech course in march. could someone please be honest with me let me no exactly what you do on a daily basis as a dialysis tech..I am really interested in this field..

    this is horrible, to get a dialysis technician training cost a thousand dollar already. wall street journal reports the new basic income is 100K. the training does not also guarantee you a job in the field.
