Description

Hospitals, laboratories and other employers have an increasing demand for phlebotomists. Most seek, and many require, a professional certification. With a CPT certification, you’ll have the credentials you need to set yourself apart from other applicants as you embark on a rewarding healthcare career. As more employers require phlebotomy certifications, a CPT will help improve your marketability in a growing and rewarding field. Employment is expected to increase by 25% from 2016 – 2026 with a 2017 median annual wage of $33,670 (Bureau of Labor Statistics Employment Projections).

This course will prepare you for work in a laboratory or clinical setting, collecting blood for testing or donation, and provide you with the necessary knowledge and skills to pass the Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT) exam accredited by the National Healthcareer Association (NHA). This exam will take place during the last class at Worcester Technical High School. NHA requires that students should have or be pursuing a high school diploma or GED in order to take the exam.
