PHLEBOTOMY TECHNICIAN TRAINING
Phlebotomists perform blood collection procedures and transport and process blood samples. Course content includes anatomy and physiology of the circulatory system, lab procedures, safety, collection techniques, legal issues, and 10 hours of clinical observations.
Attendance is critical and any absences resulting in missing critical class content may result in ineligibility to participate in live practice or to sit for the certification exam. Participants are expected to provide their own volunteers willing to sign liability waivers to participate in supervised practice of phlebotomy procedures. Vermont anticipates 30 job openings per year for phlebotomists for the next 10 years with a median wage of over $16/hour.
Upon successfully completing this course, you will be eligible to sit for the national exam to become a Phlebotomy Technician (PTC) through the American Medical Certification Association.
