Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT-1) - Installment 1

Phlebotomists are professionals who draw blood for tests, transfusions, donations, or research.

Classroom lectures cover laboratory environment, anatomy, safety and infection control, equipment, and the phlebotomy procedure.
The need for Phlebotomists will remain high as doctors and other health-care professionals require blood work for analysis and diagnoses. According to U.S. Department of Labor Statistics, the national demand of phlebotomy technicians is forecasted to grow by an estimated 24% by 2026.
