Phlebotomy technicians perform one of the most widely needed duties in healthcare settings - drawing blood from patients. This online course will train you to work as a phlebotomy technician and prepare you for the provisional Certified Phlebotomy Technician Specialist (CPTS) exam offered by the American Education Certification Association (AECA). After earning your provisional certification, you will have six months to complete the clinical skills requirements and convert to full certification. With full certification, you will be able to perform your duties as a phlebotomy technician in a variety of healthcare settings, including hospitals, diagnostic labs, nursing homes, dialysis centers, and more.
This course includes enrollment with an exam voucher option for either the Certified Phlebotomy Technician Certification Exam and Bloodborne Pathogen Prevention Exam, provided by the American Education Certification Association (AECA) or the Phlebotomy Technician (CPT) exam, provided by the National Healthcareer Association (NHA). The voucher is prepaid access to sit for the certifying exam upon eligibility. However, please research your state's requirements before enrollment to ensure this course is the right fit for you. This course is not suitable for students in California, Nevada, and Washington.
