Phlebotomy Technician

Phlebotomy Technician Certificate Program

This 150-hour phlebotomy tech course will concentrate on both clinical and didactic phlebotomy and specimen collection.


After successfully passing clinicals and the final exam, you will be prepared to sit for the national certification test from the American Society for Clinical Pathology.

During the course, you'll learn all aspects of phlebotomy in a healthcare setting, including:

  • collection procedures
  • safety guidelines
  • patient rights
  • test requirements
  • equipment basics

You'll be able to accurately:

  • perform venous collection
  • explain the proper steps for collection
  • identify the supplies needed for collection

Lecture and lab will cover the important areas in anatomy for collecting blood and will cover sites that are restricted in blood collection as well.

Lecture and initial clinical work will be held at the Olathe Health Education Center.

If you successfully complete this portion of the course, you will be assigned a 1:1 rotation with an Olathe Medical Center laboratory staff member to complete a 100+ hour clinical training rotation.

Phlebotomy program classes begin in spring and summer. Classes will meet on Saturdays during the day for lecture and practice and require 100 clinical hours at Olathe Medical Center.
