Our program is designed to be easy and flexible!
Our Clinical Phlebotomy program has been designed to provide you the classroom knowledge that you need, the hands-on practice you want, and real-life experience to ensure that you are prepared in a concise and structured manner to be competitive in the healthcare career market today.
Time well spent - Our program includes two separate learning modules:
- Classroom experience
- Clinical experience
The classroom portion of class is seven weeks long, and meets on Monday and Thursday nights. Students will be provided 2 hours of lecture where you will gain the knowledge required. Students will also spend time honing their skills by practicing needle insertions on manikins and classmates.
After completion of the classroom portion, students will participate in a 40 hour externship at a local clinical laboratory, working along-side a preceptor ; collecting real blood samples on real patients. Our externships are coordinated with several local laboratory facilities in the Centre Region. Scheduling is flexible but must occur between 7 am and 5 pm.
After classroom and externship hours are complete, our students are eligible to sit for the National Healthcareer Association Certified Phlebotomist examination. The exam will be offered through PSI testing facilities.
