Most employers require certification and lack of certification will impact your employment opportunities and earnings. Students are responsible for researching certification and/or licensure requirements and for securing appropriate experience opportunities.

Phlebotomy Technician Outcomes

Phlebotomy Technician graduates may sit for the National Healthcareer Association (NHA) Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT) exam via the NHA’s Pre-Externship Route; however, graduates will need hands-on experience completing a minimum of 30 venipunctures and 10 capillary sticks or finger sticks on live individuals, following completion of the program, to receive certification. This experience is not included in the program. Graduates must complete this experience within 90 days of passing the CPT exam and are responsible for securing their own experience site. Students must contact local blood testing providers (e.g., Labcorp or Quest), hospitals or doctor’s offices to seek out live experience opportunities.

NHA publishes application and eligibility criteria for the CPT exam, students are encouraged to review this information in detail.
