« back to classes page
Phlebotomists work in a medical setting and interact directly with patients.  A phlebotomist is responsible for safely and accurately taking blood samples from patients. Medical laboratories depend on phlebotomy technicians to collect quality laboratory specimens to ensure accurate results. To do this, the phlebotomy technician must create an atmosphere of trust and confidence with patients while drawing blood specimens in a skillful, safe, and reliable manner.

This course introduces basic medical terminology, anatomy, physiology and components of health care delivery, and teaches the clinical laboratory structure. Students learn techniques of specimen collection, specimen handling, and patient interactions. The course includes both lecture and lab, as well as clinical experiences in local health care facilities. Clinical hours are generally between the hours of 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. two days per week, but may vary depending on the facility.  This course meets the requirements for ASCP Phlebotomy Technician (PBT) certification.  In the alternative, students may pursue NHA Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT) certification.  One exam voucher (ASCP or NHA) is included and provided to students near the end of class; the exam voucher must be used within 120 days or four months from class completion. 

Pre-requisite:  Health Care Orientation class (course # 4120003).
