“Our focus and drive come from offering meaningful learning experiences that help people improve their lives through education and prepare to work in healthcare,” said Misty Frost, CEO of Carrus. “We are honored to receive this recognition and will continue to develop and offer innovative, cutting-edge training for our current and future learners.”
Largest Recognition Program in Education Technology
Celebrating its 11th year, the US-based program is the largest recognition program in all of education technology, recognizing the biggest names in edtech – and those who soon will be.
“The worldwide pandemic put education and training to the test, but remote learning and working—in many unexpected ways—ultimately brought us closer,” said Victor Rivero, who as Editor-in-Chief of EdTech Digest, oversees the program. “Trying times revealed strengths and capabilities of people, and workability of products. Leaders and innovators with their tools and techniques worked hard to keep the learning world connected to knowledge and each other. As so many have shown, nothing can stop the human spirit—and we continue to move forward.”

I’m interested in going further in my education. I’m currently a Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) and received my Certification in Phlebotomy in 2009, but my Phlebotomy Certification from my understanding from a employer is not a National Certification. I went to Med Tech College in Greenwood, IN and now they are closed for good. So I guess where I am getting at is I spent a lot of money to take the class and be Certified. Which I enjoyed doing it so much, but I am disappointed I’ve never been able to put it to use because the school said, I had all the experience I needed do to achieving over 100 sticks while in school and passing my exam. Come to find out I was basically scammed by them because I’m not a National Certified Phlebotomist “I suppose.” So before I go any further I kindly ask that I have documentation or proof of the fact that your program is 100% an ACCREDITED online program and will receive a ACCREDITED NATIONAL CERTIFICATION when finished. I don’t want to seem rude, but I don’t want to waste my time and money on pursuing something I’m very passionate about to be scammed again and very sadly disappointed. Im sorry because I don’t want or mean to sound rude or disrespectful, but I hope you can respectfully understand why I am asking for some reassurance from you please. Other than that, I want you to that your program does have my attention and I’m very interested, but just not so sure. I hope you understand and able to assist me further in all this so I know I can make the right decision. Thank you
