Certified Phlebotomy Training (MLA 7001)

A phlebotomist takes blood from a patient.

What is a certified phlebotomist?

A certified phlebotomist is a medical professional who collects blood from patients for various laboratory tests and procedures. The course consists of both a seven week classroom phase and, with successful completion, a seven week clinical experience. Students who complete both phases successfully are eligible to seek national certification. Phlebotomy training and certification enables individuals to seek employment in hospital labs, physician practices and private independent laboratories with full time or part time employment.
