The Phlebotomy Program is a one semester, non-credit certificate program that prepares students for entry-level employment as a phlebotomy technician. This certificate program will prepare students to work as a phlebotomy technician and to take the California State Phlebotomy licensing exam for CPT 1 certification. A background check may be required for clinical experience. The California Board of Phlebotomists may deny the Phlebotomy license based on convictions substantially related to Phlebotomy practice.
