Continuing Education Health Programs

Phlebotomy Technician I

A phlebotomist is a healthcare professional who is trained to collect patients' blood specimens from their veins or by micro-collection techniques for clinical laboratory tests or examination purposes.  Phlebotomists usually work under the supervision of nurses, medical technologists, or laboratory managers. 

Mt. SAC offers a fee-based training program that prepares students to pass the certifying exam through the California Department of Health.  The CPT I program comprises 60 hours of classroom instruction and 100 hours of clinical externship.  Classroom instruction is in the evenings; externship schedules vary.  The program takes approximately 16 weeks, depending on the student's progress in successfully performing the required number of procedures on patients in a clinical setting. 

This course costs $1,600.  Because of high interest, students are selected by lottery.  Students must have a high school diploma or GED, a Social Security Card and a photo ID.
