Questions :

Students require a high school diploma, GED or transcript of work past high school (college or vocational school). Students from other countries may be asked to prove English competency.

To be placed in their clinical externship (required for class completion), students must provide documentation they have received vaccinations or are immune to: MMR – measles, mumps and rubella (some externship locations require 2 vaccines) Varicella (chicken pox) Hepatitis B And have a tuberculosis skin test or negative chest x-ray in the last 6 months. This documentation is due by the end of the classroom portion of the course.

None. We specialize in and only teach phlebotomy.

Phlebotomists require good manual dexterity and the ability to stand on their feet for periods of time. They should like working with all kinds of people, have good communication skills, be level headed and good at working under pressure. In addition, they should be comfortable working with computers and be detailed oriented. Labeling and handling specimens is as important as being able to draw blood.

Our classes have a maximum of 10 students with one instructor, to allow for hand-on training. All of our instructors are phlebotomy supervisors who work at local labs or hospitals.

Our program is less than $2000, we do not offer financial aid. We do allow students to make a deposit and ‘pay as they go’ over the 10 weeks of class.

No, learning to draw blood is both an art as well as a science. It requires hand-on learning and practice to get good at it. Our classes do require the student do much of the academic work – reading and homework – outside of class.

Our program prepares students to take the national exam given by the American Society of Phlebotomy Technicians (ASPT). More information can be found at www.ASPT.org. This exam is given by many schools and the ASPT in the Orlando area. Students can decide if they want to take the national exam as once it is issued, continuing education units are required to keep the certification up-to-date.

The school is regulated and licensed by the State of Florida. We are an approved program by the American Society of Phlebotomy Technicians (ASPT). The school does not have any degree programs so it is not accredited.
