Phlebotomy Technician Mission:

Our mission is to train and prepare individuals who will be responsible for the accurate and timely collection of specimens for analysis. They would perform blood specimen collections, other types of specimen collections and enter data. They would be competent, ethical and have compassion as they provide the best  health care to every patient every day.

Program Description

The program spans 13 weeks for a total of 186 hours. There are 11 weeks, 2 times per week in the classroom from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. totaling 66 hours. Following this,                         to gain knowledge and skills to meet the goals, there are 3  weeks of clinical rotations in a hospital setting, 5 days per week, 8 hours per day for a total of 120 hours.

However, applicants who have paid the $200.00 deposit are prioritized in the date order in which the seat deposit has been paid.
