Coastal Bend College is now accepting applications for a phlebotomy training program to be held at CBC Beeville. The training will be held on six Saturdays, starting on Saturday, October 12 running through Saturday, November 16. The cost of the training program is $565.90.
The training will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, resulting in 48 hours of training followed by 15 eight hour shifts as a clinical for a total of 120 clinical hours.
No prior healthcare knowledge or experience is required to apply, but candidates are required to have a high school diploma or GED. Students will need to purchase a book, white scrubs, and rubber sole shoes.
A phlebotomist is an integral part of the healthcare team and properly obtains blood specimens from patients of all ages, using venipuncture and capillary collection. Phlebotomists work in multiple healthcare environments such as inpatient and outpatient settings.
To successfully pass this program, students will need to dedicate time outside the course for studying. After completing the class, students will be able to sit for the American Society of Clinical Pathology Certification Exam.
To apply, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a student packet that must be filled out along with a background check and immunizations.
