Phlebotomy Technician

Description

The Phlebotomy Technician class is offered each spring and fall semester. Please check back either mid-July or early December for the latest registration information including: date, time and price.

Please login or create a new profile to be notified when a new section becomes available.


Do you want to work in an emergency department, clinic, laboratory or any number of settings hiring phlebotomists or phlebotomy technicians? Or perhaps add to a previous certification? The ISU phlebotomy program prepares you for these roles and allows an opportunity to take a national certification exam upon course completion.

 

Topics range from blood draws and laboratory procedures to employability skills and safety.  Each student is scheduled for 40 hours to draw blood in a  real clinical agency!

 

Additional costs include: uniform, immunizations and a Healthcare Provider CPR certification course (CPR available through Workforce Training or area hospitals).

 

Clinical hours will be outside of normal course times to fit agency operating hours. Forty (40) clinical hours are required - dependent on completing at least 100 blood draws. More clinical time may be required to fulfill that number.

Idaho Division of Professional Technical Education
