Training Structure and Requirements

The training consists of two parts:

  1. Part 1: A two-hour in-person class.
  2. Part 2: Student Observation, where each student must complete a minimum of five observed blood draws under the guidance of the CRC Phlebotomy Team.

The duration for completing the observation part varies based on each student’s comfort level and proficiency. Students are required to arrange for their volunteers to complete this section.

Cost and Certification

The cost of the training is $50, payable by the department account before the class. Participants must also complete Blood Bourne Pathogen Training and provide the certificate during registration. Upon fulfilling both the in-person and observation requirements within 90 days, students receive a Certificate of Completion from the CRC. This certificate indicates the completion of the course but does not equate to a certification in phlebotomy.
