All phlebotomists have some sort of training. To get into this training, you must have at least a high school diploma or a GED.
The training always includes two parts: an in-class portion to learn the theory and terminology, and an off-campus portion in a clinic to gain on the job experience. Some programs require more in one area than others, but the general rule is to spend at least half the time you have spent in the classroom in a clinic for experience. Some programs reverse it and have you spend more time in the clinic, which is a good thing.
For the most basic position in a career in phlebotomy, you will need to have 20 hours in an approved class room course, 25 supervised punctures in a clinic, and apply for the certification for a limited phlebotomy technician.
The next position requires 40 hours of classroom time and clinic time. During the clinic time, you must perform at least 10 skin punctures and 50 venipunctures under supervision. Training in the field can be slightly waved if you have 1040 hours of experience and a written letter that proves you have done so. 20 hours of classroom time is all you will need before the certification for a phlebotomy technician I.
To move up to a phlebotomy technician II, you must have had at least 1040 hours of experience in the past five years. You must also be a certified phlebotomy technician I. Then you must also complete 20 arterial punctures, and produce a letter that shows you have done so. Then all you have to do is apply for a certification.
Application and Costs
Costs for these training courses vary from program to program.
One class for phlebotomy in Oregon is held at the Lane Community College. Tuition costs are $1,700, and covers tuition, textbooks, and other fees. Only 16 students are accepted to this class, and it’s decided on a first come, first serve basis. Held in the spring and fall semesters, the classes are on Tuesdays and Thursdays. These are non-credit classes and cover Phlebotomy I and II.
A slightly more expensive course is available from Oregon Medical Training, Inc. This one has three fees: $1,650 for tuition, $150 for supplies, and $100 for the registration. That’s a total of $1,900. This one does not require that an intern or extern ship is completed. Classes are held on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings.
There are other courses available in Oregon.
While most of what a phlebotomy class does is supposed to be done in person, the theory portions of the class can be done online. Phlebotomy Services offers a three day online/in person class. The first two days are done online and deal with technique and theory. The third day is in person. The other two days must be completed before you can do the third day. Tuition costs are $899. If you register less than three weeks before the class begins, you pay an extra $50. These classes work in every state except California and Louisiana for certification.
Maintaining and Renewing License
To renew your license you must complete six hours of classes and pay the fee. This is done every two years, no matter your level of training. Everyone is documented on competency annually and certification must be displayed promptly where you work.
Salaries and Jobs
Entry level jobs will earn around $21,000 a year. The highest paid jobs earn $43,000 or more each year. Location is the biggest factor in how much you’re paid. Phlebotomists usually work with blood, whether it is drawing it or transporting it for testing.
