Course Description

Our phlebotomy training classes are comprehensive and emphasize a “hands-on” method. Each student will draw blood at least once in every class. These draws will be supervised by the instructor and performed on other class members. Our instructors will guide you as you learn a variety of phlebotomy techniques. The course includes 7-weeks of lecture, discussion, and practical instruction in the lab. Each student must pass the final written and skill exams of the class with a final grade of “B” (80%) or better and satisfy all financial obligations to OPTC before graduating from our program. Once completed, students can work as an entry-level Phlebotomy Technician in a health care setting.
