Northwest Career & Technical Center has developed a hybrid phlebotomy program that has been approved by the National Healthcare Association in order to offer the nationally approved Phlebotomy Technician Certification Preparation course and to be a testing site for the Certified Phlebotomy Technician examination. The hybrid program allows students to attend class online and in person for hands-on training. This model allows students to minimize in person instruction and allows students to pace themselves during the course. In order to sit for certification, students must attend 84 classroom hours and complete the necessary venipuncture and capillary punctures as outlined by the National Healthcare Association.

Due to the growing need for phlebotomists, Northwest Career & Technical Center has created relationships with Northwestern Medical Center and University of VT Medical Center in order to provide students with observational clinicals that will help each student gain insight and knowledge as to what working as a phlebotomist looks like. Each student will be offered up to 10 hours of clinical time with a skilled phlebotomist who will work with the student in order to answer questions, provide knowledge and demonstrate phlebotomy skills. Upon successful completion of the course, students are then eligible for interviews with the Northwestern Medical Center when jobs are posted and at the University of VT Medical Center via the HiTec program when jobs are posted. Students should visit Northwestern Medical Center’s public website for job listings, whereas students should visit HiTech’s website for University of VT Medical Center job listings

With the growing demand for phlebotomists, Northwestern Medical Center and University of VT Medical Center both offer a variety of shifts and career ladders in order to help you grow as a medical professional. As the face of the laboratory, you will work with patients, families and other health care professionals in order to deliver quality patient care. Now more than ever is the time to join a healthcare team and be part of someone's life. Join our phlebotomy program and take the first step towards a rewarding and exciting career.

This course is taught by two instructors.
