FAQS

Does this course prepare for a certification?

Yes, you will be prepared to sit for the Certified Phlebotomy Technician Specialist (CPTS) exam, offered by the American Education Certification Association (AECA), and the Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT) exam, through the National Healthcareer Association (NHA). Upon completion, you may choose to receive one voucher for either the (CPTS) or (CPT) Certification exam.

What is a phlebotomy technician?

Phlebotomy technicians perform one of the most widely needed duties in healthcare settings—drawing blood from patients. They collect blood samples, and they prepare them for testing in the lab to help diagnose health conditions and illnesses. Phlebotomy technicians are also responsible for preparing lab equipment, explaining blood draw procedures to patients, calming those who may be nervous, taking blood pressure and pulse readings, collecting fluids properly, sterilizing equipment after use, and updating patient medical records.

How long does it take to become a phlebotomy technician?

This course is self-paced and open enrollment, so you can start as soon as you are ready and finish at your own pace. When you register, you will receive six months to complete the course.

What is the difference between a phlebotomy technician and phlebotomist?

Most of the time, these titles are used interchangeably by employers. However, the term phlebotomist can also be used to identify a phlebotomy technician who has undergone more training and has more experience. In this case, both will work with patients in the lab, draw blood, and take care of equipment and samples, but a phlebotomist may also supervise other phlebotomy technicians.

How much does a phlebotomy technician make?

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the median salary for phlebotomy technicians is $36,320. The top 10% of people in this profession currently make over $50,000 in annual salary. Outpatient care centers and medical diagnostic labs tend to pay slightly higher salaries than physicians' offices, hospitals, and ambulatory healthcare services.

How do I become a phlebotomy technician?

You will need professional training to enter a career as a phlebotomy technician. This online course will provide you with the training and skills to begin working as a phlebotomy technician. In addition, you will be prepared 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.

This course also provides you with an externship starter kit to help you find and secure your own externship, which will help you gain the clinical skills needed to earn full certification through the AECA or National Healthcareer Association (NHA). After earning your full certification, you will be able to perform your duties as a phlebotomy technician in various healthcare settings, including outpatient care centers, hospitals, diagnostic labs, nursing homes, dialysis centers, physicians' offices, and more.

Which phlebotomy certification is best?

There are a lot of great options when it comes to phlebotomy certification. This course will prepare you for two industry-recognized certification exams in the country—the Certified Phlebotomy Technician Specialist (CPTS) exam offered by the American Education Certification Association (AECA) or the Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT) exam offered by the National Healthcareer Association (NHA). A voucher for the exam of your choice will be provided at the end of your course. It is also a good idea to do some of your own research on each of these certifications to determine the best one for you.
