Phlebotomy for Certification
Training in phlebotomy prepares you for a career in drawing blood, or provides health care professionals with an additional skill. There is an increasing demand for qualified phlebotomists in a variety of medical setting: hospitals, physicians' offices, and laboratories. This two-part course, approved by the ASCP (American Society of Clinical Pathologists Route 2), provides the knowledge and training necessary to earn national certification in the field. Students complete 44 hours of classroom instruction, followed by up to 120 hours of clinical experience at a medical facility located in Onondaga, Oswego, or Cortland County. Within those 120 hours, students need to complete 100 successful blood draws. Upon completion of the course, students are eligible to take the certification exam.
Classes meet in the evenings; clinical hours are during the day. Clinical placements are assigned in the order in which completed health forms are turned in, on a first-come, first-served basis. Only two missed classes are permitted. Proof of high school diploma or equivalent, proof of medical insurance, and full tuition are due at registration.
The spring Phlebotomy class has been filled.
The next Phlebotomy class will begin October 2013. Class information and the in-person registration date will be posted in August.
