The Phlebotomy Technician Program is a nine week course that meets 16 hours per week and prepares professionals for blood collection using several different techniques to perform laboratory analysis. Students will become familiar with the entire process of blood collection as well as post blood collection for processing. Students will develop comprehensive skills to perform venipuncture accurately and safely, while also assuring testing specimens are secured and stored for future analysis. When students satisfactorily complete all requirements of the program they are eligible to take a National certificate exam such as the NCCT or National Center for Compentency Testing. These fees ($90) are not included in the cost of the class. A criminal background check & Abuse registry check is a requirement for all phlebotomy students. A $25.00 non-refundable fee is payable at time of class registration with personal check, cash or money order to EICC.
