The field of phlebotomy is growing with a projected 10% increase in job demand from 2021-31. Phlebotomists fulfill vital roles at hospitals, physician offices, diagnostic labs and blood donation centers. They are primarily responsible for collecting blood samples from patients via venipuncture or capillary puncture. The phlebotomist also facilitates the collection and transportation of the laboratory specimens and is often the patient’s only contact with the laboratory staff.

Our eight-week phlebotomy program provides interested individuals with the knowledge and clinical skills need to become a certified phlebotomy technician. During the course learners will be presented with engaging content and hands-on experiences to prepare for the National Healthcareer Association Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT) exam. In preparation for this exam, students are required to obtain at least 30 successful venipunctures and 10 successful capillary punctures.
