Phlebotomy Technician

Phlebotomy Technician Training Program Details

The Phlebotomy Technician certificate program will prepare students to work as healthcare technicians specializing in phlebotomy. The primary job responsibilities for a certified phlebotomist involve drawing blood and preparing it for lab testing.

Through a hands-on training approach, our instructors will train students in these areas as well as others. Upon completion of the program, graduates will be able to seek employment as phlebotomy technicians.

Employment Opportunities for Phlebotomists

Employment opportunities for certified phlebotomy technicians can be found in hospitals, private clinics, pathology labs, nursing homes, and even research labs. The career outlook in the field of phlebotomy is very promising. The field is expanding quickly, and job growth is expected to grow considerably over the next decade.

Many healthcare workers also use phlebotomy as a stepping stone towards a better career. It’s not uncommon for experienced phlebotomists to obtain additional education and training to become medical assistants, surgical techs, or cardiovascular technologists.

Certification / Registry Exam Eligibility

Phlebotomy graduates will be eligible to take the Phlebotomy Technician Certification exam offered by the National Healthcareer Association (NHA) and the National Phlebotomy Technician Certification Exam from the National Center for Competency Testing (NCCT). Graduates who pass the exams can earn the CPT (NHA) or NCPT (NCCT) credentials.

Eligibility requirements for the CPT and NCPT credentials are solely determined by NHA and NCCT, and are subject to change at any time. NHA and NCCT are independent organizations. AIMS does not guarantee certification/registry exam eligibility.
