ATC Phlebotomy Training Program is for students seeking a certification as a “Certified Phlebotomy Technician”, which is designed and coordinated to both teach them the technical knowledge, as well as various procedural elements of basic and advanced phlebotomy.
This includes both the collection of blood specimens and also venipuncture; these are part of the necessary requirements to become a Phlebotomy Technician. The Phlebotomy Training Program at ATC includes a combination of classroom theory and hands-on instruction in our own in-house Laboratory environment, followed by an externship and practical experience in a Laboratory Clinical Setting.
Our program will instruct our students on many topics including: an Introduction to Phlebotomy & Infection Control, Legal Issues in the Healthcare arena, an Introduction to Human Anatomy & Physiology, Medical Terminology usage, typical Phlebotomy Equipment and Supplies, various Phlebotomy Clinical Skills/Procedures, and lastly, the Fundamental Essentials of Phlebotomy. This Phlebotomy program is developed for students who want to not only become employed or enhance their careers, but also those interested in entering a new field or beginning a career in the medical field to become a Phlebotomy Technician.
This is a fully developed, comprehensive, 60-hour program of Didactic Instruction (basic and advanced Phlebotomy) at ATC, along with 40-hours minimum in an external Laboratory/Clinical Setting.
