With a hands-on curriculum of 100 hours, the Phlebotomy Technician program at the Harris School provides students with the skills and knowledge they need to become a phlebotomy technician.
The curriculum covers a range of study areas including: human anatomy and physiology, First Aid and CPR, blood collection, infection prevention, and clinical laboratory procedures. Learning takes place both in a classroom setting and in a sample laboratory where students practice blood draws (venipuncture) and other laboratory techniques.
The curriculum for the Phlebotomy Technician program helps give our graduates a strong foundation as they pursue a career in this rewarding field. The curriculum is designed so that successful students will be prepared to sit for the certification exam called the Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT) exam. Offered by the National Healthcareer Association, this exam is held at the Danbury campus for eligible students for an additional fee.
The CPT certification is recognized all over the country, and shows prospective employers that you have proven skills.
