JCC offers Phlebotomy Technician Training—Info. Session Jan. 25

Jefferson Community College (JCC), in collaboration with Boston Reed College, will hold a Phlebotomy Technician training program information session for prospective students on Tuesday, January 25, 2011 at 6:00 p.m. in Room 6-002 of the Jules Center (Building 6).

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the need for laboratory technicians, including phlebotomists, is expected to grow by 14% between 2006 and 2016. Laboratories rely on the phlebotomy technician to collect quality samples from the patient to produce quality laboratory results. To do this, a phlebotomy technician must create an atmosphere of trust and confidence with patients while drawing blood specimens in a skillful, safe, and reliable manner.

The Phlebotomy Technician training program will run from April 26 through June 9, 2011 on JCC’s campus in Watertown. The program consists of 48 hours of classroom training on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and a 40-hour externship in the local community. Upon successful completion of the program the student will receive a certificate of completion and be eligible to sit for the national exam to become a Certified Phlebotomy Technician. The course fee of $2995.00 includes books, course supplies, externship, and a course certificate of completion.

Learn more about the Phlebotomy Technician training program and pick up an application packet at the information session on January 25.

The Phlebotomy Technician program is offered by Boston Reed College in collaboration with the Continuing Education Division at Jefferson Community College (315-786-2233).
