Phlebotomists are trained in specimen collection and processing and remain integral members of the laboratory team. This program consists of 100 hours of classroom/lab instruction and 80 hours of clinical practice at a hospital while preparing you for employment as a phlebotomist in hospitals, outpatient clinics, medical practices, and insurance companies. The clinical practice runs during daytime/weekday hours and will be assigned at the end of the first month of the class. Please make sure you are available for at least one week during the daytime for a local clinical experience. Upon successful completion of this course, you are eligible to sit for the American Society of Phlebotomy Technicians (ASPT) National Certification Exam, which will be held at RVCC.
