Not all phlebotomy programs are the same. If you choose to go to an unapproved online phlebotomy training program, you may receive improper and unsafe training. Without the proper education, you may not have taken or passed the mandatory national and state phlebotomist certification exams. In addition, you will not be eligible or selected for phlebotomy positions because employers want workers who have received a thorough and correct education.
By attending an approved program, you will be trained correctly and safely by following CDPH and BPPE guidelines and given academic support. With this skill set and guidance, students are more prepared to enter the workforce.
