Phlebotomy

Certificate Offered

Credits Required: 7

Phlebotomy involves the practice of drawing blood for clients and taking the blood specimens to the laboratory to prepare them for testing. The phlebotomy courses include topics such as anatomy and physiology of the circulatory system and blood-drawing techniques. Students will have hands-on training in drawing blood through vein punctures and skin punctures.

After students complete the program, they may take the national certification examination that credentials them as certified phlebotomists [PBT (ASCP)]. Program graduates will be fully prepared for entry into the field of health care with employers such as laboratories, donor centers, physician offices, hospitals, clinics, outpatient facilities, and public health departments.
