The CPCC Phlebotomy program can be completed in one semester. It is offered in spring and fall. This program is patterned on requirements of the American Society of Clinical Pathology (www.ascp.org), enabling participants to sit for certifying examinations. This program is recognized by local employers.
It is strongly recommended that students take

This course prepares the participant in the knowledge and skills to become a certified phlebotomist, 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.
The cost of the Phlebotomy course is at least $250 not including books, immunizations, and other program requirements.
