What Does a Phlebotomy Technician Do?

Certified Phlebotomy Technicians collect blood and non-blood specimens for testing, so they can be analyzed in a clinical laboratory. Specimen tests are used to diagnose illness, evaluate the effectiveness of medications and determine whether a patient is receiving proper nutrition. After gaining the Phlebotomy certification, you may work in clinical laboratories, hospitals, community health centers, nursing homes, doctor’s offices, blood donation centers and other health care facilities.

What You’ll Learn
Facebook - Phlebotomy - Program Page

Phlebotomy jobs are increasing by 24.3% over the next 10 years! You can begin your journey today to become an important part of the medical field. Our phlebotomy certification program includes three courses: Professionalism in Allied Health, Intro to Human Anatomy and Medical Terminology and Phlebotomy.

In medical and diagnostic laboratories, patient interaction is sometimes only with the phlebotomist, which allows a unique opportunity to positively impact the patient’s experience. Because customer service is a priority in situations where direct patient care or other patient/client interaction occurs, we’ve included our Professionalism in Allied Health course.

While learning a clinical skill with phlebotomy online classes sounds like a unique idea, our highly immersive, tech-enabled program is designed to replicate the real-world experience through professionally produced simulations, 3D animations and the 12 Elements of eLearning model. You’ll learn the proper procedure for blood draw, keeping a clean, sanitary, and safe work environment and how to assemble and maintain equipment such as needles and specimen containers.

After completion of our Phlebotomy training program, you will have the knowledge to pass the Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT) exam, issued through the NHA (National Healthcareer Association), and begin your career in healthcare.

Phlebotomy Certification Exam Eligibility:

Upon completion of this program, students wishing to sit for the Certified Phlebotomy Technician exam will be required to complete 30 venipunctures and 10 capillary sticks on a live person. Students should already be working in the field to complete this requirement.

NOTE: This Phlebotomy certification program is NOT available to students who plan to work in the states of California or Washington.
