Phlebotomists obtain blood from patients for laboratory analysis. Students will learn: to identify potential venipuncture sites, the cellular components of blood and their functions, the mechanisms for anti-coagulants, and necessary precautions for sample transport and infection control. A pretest, interview and high school diploma are required for approval into this program. Information about applying for national certification with the National Competency Certification Test (NCCT) will be distributed upon completion of the course and certification is the responsibility of the student.
