The Phlebotomy Technician program prepares students to collect blood specimens from clients 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.
Following the completion of the classroom portion of the course, students will be scheduled for 120 hours of clinical practice at a local medical facility. After successful completion of both the classroom instruction and clinical practice, students are prepared to take the American Society of Phlebotomy Technician (ASPT) exam.
