Phlebotomy Course

The Phlebotomy Class for Fall 2016 is full.

Orientation for classes beginning in Spring 2017 will be scheduled in the Fall.

Please check back for the date, time, place after September 22, 2016.

Note: This orientation is mandatory to be considered for admission to the Phlebotomy class. Please arrive early to secure a parking spot, be on time and bring a pen. Once the orientation begins late arrivals will not be admitted since this is a major distraction to the group.

Also, please note that you must have a GED or high school diploma prior to taking the course.
