Course Overview

Nine-week Phlebotomy Certification Program

Are you looking for a career in healthcare or need clinical medical experience? Have you thought about becoming a phlebotomist? As a phlebotomist, you are responsible for drawing blood from patients and delivering this blood to local laboratories for testing and while getting to meet and interact with new people on a day-to-day basis.

97% of graduates go on to work in a medical lab immediately after graduation.

In addition to clinicians, nurses and patient support personnel, the medical laboratory serves a vital role in the healthcare system, providing clinicians with excellent diagnostic tests. Specimens must first be collected and assessed for quality before being analyzed by the clinical laboratory; this is the essential role of the Clinical Laboratory Assistant/ Phlebotomist.
