Session begins Tuesday, September 8, 2020
The mission of the Phlebotomy Technician program is to prepare students to function as an active part of the laboratory team.
This comprehensive 90-hour phlebotomy technician program prepares professionals to collect blood specimens from clients through venipuncture and capillary sampling for the purpose of laboratory analysis. Students will become familiar with all aspects related to blood collection and develop comprehensive skills to perform venipunctures completely and safely.
Phlebotomy Technician Overview
Phlebotomy technicians or phlebotomists are medical laboratory technicians whose primary job duty is to draw blood from patients. Some phlebotomists work in physician offices and focus primarily on securing blood samples for testing. Others phlebotomists collect blood from donors to be placed in a blood bank for later use.
Students will complete classroom learning as well as hands on practice in a clinical lab setting. Students will be guided in the technique of venipuncture and capillary blood collection. In addition, there will be classroom discussion related to the collection of other body fluids for sampling, such as urine.
This certificate program prepares students to sit for the national exam to become nationally certified.
