Phlebotomy is the process of making a puncture in a vein, usually in the arm, with a needle for the purpose of drawing blood. A phlebotomist is rewarding, since you help people stay healthy and even help save their lives. Our course is a blend of lectures and labs to get you experienced with various vein puncture techniques.
