Vermont phlebotomy program requirements
You can enroll and complete a training program fairly quickly. You must meet the requirements below before you enroll:
- 18 years of age
- High school diploma or equivalent
- Up-to-date immunization records
National accreditation agencies accredit schools. Two are the National Phlebotomy Association (NPA) and American Allied Health National Certification (CPT). Agencies like these will provide testing and monitor certification. They also provide continuing education units (CEUs). Continuing education is the system that accreditation organizations use to monitor certified phlebotomists. You must complete a certain number of hours every two years, and this can include online classes or in-person workshops.
What to expect from phlebotomy classes
Accelerated programs May last as little as two months. Others can last one to two semesters. Below are some of the topics classes cover:
- Legal and ethical issues
- Blood drawing procedure
- Working with patients
- Labeling, handling, and transporting
- Performing computer operations
- Lab testing and quality control
- Bloodborne pathogens
Once you receive training in a clinical setting and classroom study, after around 20 hours of practice, you will be able to handle clinical rotations without direct supervision. You do not need a certification for this.
It takes anywhere from 4 to 6 months to finish your training and qualify for the test. School can cost around $700 or more.
Once you obtain a certification, you can work pretty much anywhere that phlebotomist technicians are needed. Some of the main settings you’ll work in include outpatient and inpatient settings. Inpatient settings could be hospitals or long-term care facilities, and examples of outpatient facilities include doctor’s offices and emergency rooms.
The hours you work depend on your employer and where you work. If you are in a healthcare center with patients, you’ll spend much of the day working with coworkers and the public. You’ll take on a more technical role in a research laboratory setting, preparing and transporting samples for analysis.
The US Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that job growth for phlebotomists is at 10% from 2020 to 2030. As a certified technician, you will be able to work in a variety of settings. Most phlebotomists work in healthcare and research.
- Private care facilities
- Health Management organizations (HMOs)
- Physician’s offices
- Ambulatory services
|Where Phlebotomists Work||% of Jobs|

- Sales representative
- Certified trainer
- Blood donor recruiter
- EKG technician
- EMT or paramedic
- Cardiovascular technologist
There are many different avenues and options to consider. Phlebotomists can continue their education by receiving a level 2 certification which allows them to do venipunctures, dermal punctures, and arterial punctures.
With the right skills and training, you can move into almost any healthcare-related industry. There are lots of opportunities if you have an entrepreneurial Spirit as well. You could own your own training school or become self-employed. The sky’s the limit!
