The Phlebotomy Certificate of Technical Studies (CTS) is designed to teach the technical and procedural aspects of basic phlebotomy, including collection of blood specimens and venipuncture. This program includes both theory and hands-on instruction including the concepts of phlebotomy and infection control, legal issues in healthcare, introduction to human anatomy and physiology, phlebotomy equipment and supplies, and phlebotomy procedures.
The seven credit program consists of just two courses: an instructional classroom course, followed by a clinical and exam prep course. The clinical portion includes 100 intensive hours at a local clinic or hospital.
Successful Phlebotomy CTS students will be prepared to take the Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT) exam, which will enable graduates to enter a promising phlebotomy career or pursue further healthcare education.
