Training in phlebotomy prepares you for a career in drawing blood, or provides health care professionals with an additional skill. There is an increasing demand for qualified phlebotomists in a variety of medical setting: hospitals, physicians' offices, and laboratories. This two-part course, approved by the ASCP (American Society of Clinical Pathologists Route 2), provides the knowledge and training necessary to earn national certification in the field. Students complete 44 hours of classroom instruction, followed by up to 120 hours of clinical experience at a medical facility located in Onondaga, Oswego, or Cortland County. Within those 120 hours, students need to complete 100 successful blood draws. Upon completion of the course, students are eligible to take the certification exam.
