What You'll Learn

Our phlebotomy technician training is the quickest way to reset your career and prospects. With what you’ll learn in just a few short weeks, you’ll retool yourself with valuable new skills—and priceless confidence.

Healthcare & Cardiovascular Foundations

Learn to recognize and understand basic anatomy with an emphasis on the cardiovascular system as well as pathophysiology and hematology testing.

Venipuncture Insertion & Removal Techniques

Master venipuncture, the drawing of blood from a vein and the standard safety measures to protect from pathogen exposure.

Capillary Puncture Method

Add the finger-prick method to your repertoire, the easier and less painful procedure that produces a drop of blood with the prick of a lancet.

Processing, Labeling, & Transporting Samples

Know and apply laboratory quality and safety regulations through the entire process of collecting, handling, and reporting the results of bloodwork and non-blood specimens (such as urine, stool, and cultures).

Your Questions—Answered

Yes, it sounds funny. And no, it’s not a hole in the head or brain amputation. Phlebotomy is simply the process of drawing blood or opening a vein to introduce a fluid or medicine. It’s one of the most fundamental (and therefore important) techniques in medicine today.

A medical VIP. You’ll be the person on the medical team that draws blood to be used for diagnostic testing, transfusions, research, or blood donations.

More than just sticking people and applying cute Band-Aids, you’ll be a critical player on the medical team. A typical day in your new life as a certified phlebotomy tech will probably include drawing and labeling blood samples, verifying patient identities, and entering patient information into a database.

The U.S. Department of Labor reports that the mean annual wage for phlebotomy technicians is $34,710. The bottom 10% and top 90% of phlebotomy technicians earn $24,250 and $48,030, respectively.

Good question. California, Louisiana, Nevada, and Washington do require certification. But according to the U.S. Department of Labor, phlebotomy tech certification is not required in other states. However, most employers prefer to hire certified phlebotomy technicians. Unquestionably, getting certified makes you more hirable and desirable.

Pretty easy. No specific skills or experience is required. Just be at least 18 years old and have a high school diploma or General Education Development (GED) certificate. Optionally, you can pass the CareerStep Pre-Training Assessment Test. Then sign up for our phlebotomy technician training online, complete the course, and pass the CPT certification exam. (Additional phlebotomy technician certification requirements for the CPT exam include performing a minimum of 30 venipunctures and 10 capillary sticks. We’ll show you how to do this locally.) Then, use our career assistance to land your first awesome job in the prestigious field of medicine!
