Phlebotomy Technicians must have an
understanding of basic coding and billing procedures, enjoy working with
people, work well under pressure, be attentive to detail and have excellent
manual dexterity. To be successful, you should also feel comfortable using a
computer and have an aptitude for other high-tech devices. There is both an art
and a science necessary to the profession.
The phlebotomy technician program at NVCC provides the student with 200 hours of classroom instruction, simulated lab experience, and the clinical validation opportunities needed to meet the growing demands of the role of the phlebotomy technician. You will not need to find your own clinical site. Our program coordinator will schedule your clinical experience at one of our partner facilities.
After successful completion of the program you will be eligible to sit for the Phlebotomy Technician Certification exam given by the American Society of Clinical Pathologists.
Conveniently offered at our Waterbury and Danbury Campuses.
