EVCC Phlebotomy Technician Certificate

Phlebotomy Technician Certificate

Phlebotomy is the act of drawing or removing blood from the circulatory system through a cut (incision) or puncture in order to obtain a sample for analysis and diagnosis. Phlebotomy is also done as part of the patient’s treatment for certain blood disorders.

This program is designed for students with no prior knowledge of phlebotomy techniques and procedures. Anatomy and physiology of the blood and circulatory system, phlebotomy skills, quality assurance, and medical laboratory information are stressed. All procedures meet standards for phlebotomy training developed by the Clinical Laboratory Standards Institute.

Students enroll in Health 220 after all prerequisites are met. Upon successful completion of classroom and clinical externship training, the student meets eligibility requirements to sit for the national certification exam sponsored by the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP).
