One Semester, In-Demand Career
Blood analysis is an essential function in many medical settings. Employment of phlebotomists is expected to grow as doctors and other health care professionals require bloodwork for analysis and diagnosis.
Local Demand Is High
Many opportunities for trained phlebotomists are available in local health care facilities, such as hospitals, emergency clinics, private practices, blood banks, and nursing homes.
Hands-on Experience in a Clinical Setting
Under professional supervision, you will learn to safely perform blood and specimen collection procedures on patients in various health care settings.
Certification in One Semester
Almost all employers look for phlebotomists who have earned professional certification. In just one semester, or 16 weeks, you will be prepared to sit for the American Society of Phlebotomy Technicians (ASPT) exam.
The Phlebotomy certificate is now offered through our Continuing Education division of Economic and Workforce Development, giving you an affordable pathway into the health care field.
