Certified Phlebotomy Technician
Are you seeking a new career in the high-demand healthcare field? Do you enjoy working with people and work well under pressure? A career as a phlebotomy technician may be right for you. Phlebotomy technicians are valuable members of the healthcare team who collect and prepare lab specimens for analysis. In this course, you learn about phlebotomy procedures and practice blood draw techniques. This is a 180-hour program that includes 120 hours of lecture (online) and 60 hours of simulation labs and/or internships that cover medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, venipuncture, specimen collection procedures, safety and universal precautions, common laboratory tests with clinical significance to body systems and disease processes, medical coding for laboratory procedures, and laboratory equipment.
Due to COVID-19, students will NOT be able to complete an internship at Middlesex Health Outpatient Laboratories. Hands on practice will be done at Middlesex CC in the lab classroom.
This program has been recognized by the National Healthcareer Association, a premier national certification agency. Upon completion of the program, students are eligible for national certification through NHA.
