Course Description: The CVCC Phlebotomy Technician Program is designed to prepare students to be professional Phlebotomy Technicians dedicated to safely collecting venous and dermal blood specimens for laboratory testing. In addition to classroom training students will participate in clinical training that will be completed in an accredited laboratory at a local medical center. The program prepares graduates to sit for the ASCP-BOC national certification exam in Phlebotomy. Graduates are equipped to prepare the patient, perform venipuncture and dermal blood collection, maintain the quality of the specimen and assist with collection of other non-blood specimens in a variety of settings.
This is a 45-hour class that will cover theory and in-class practice. Each student will be required to attend orientation at a Clinical Site, obtain 100 hours at the clinical site and perform 100 successful, unaided blood collections including venipunctures and skin punctures. An exam review session will be held following clinical rotations.
CVCC offers an optional pre-course, The American Heart Association Basic Life Support (BLS) class, to train students to recognize several life-threatening emergencies, give high-quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilations, and provide early use of an AED. This class is specifically designed for healthcare professionals and other personnel who need to perform CPR and other basic cardiovascular life support skills.
CVCC offers an optional pre-course, Medical Terminology Bootcamp, designed to assist students in learning medical language and basic structure and function of the human body.
