« back to classes page
Phlebotomists are professionals who draw blood for tests, transfusions, donations, or research. This program provides, through classroom time and clinical instruction, training and knowledge to apply and take the National Certification Phlebotomy Technician I exam. Classroom lectures cover laboratory environment, anatomy, safety and infection control, equipment, and the phlebotomy procedure.

Become a Phlebotomist in 4 Steps:
  1. Classroom Time—48 hours at West LA College
  2. National Exam—2 hours on campus
  3. Externship—40 hours in clinical setting
  4. Submit Documents to the State of California

Externship: Clinical instruction provides hands-on training in venipuncture technique, laboratory assisting, and administrative office duties.

Job Outlook: The need for Phlebotomists will remain high as doctors and other health-care professionals require blood work for analysis and diagnoses. According to U.S. Department of Labor Statistics, the national demand of phlebotomy technicians is forecasted to grow by an estimated 24% by 2026.
