Phlebotomy Training Program at IMBC.EDU
Phlebotomists need good interpersonal skills and a focused, professional attitude. In addition to taking patient blood samples, you might find yourself performing clerical tasks, maintaining equipment or doing lab work in this fast-growing career.
As a phlebotomist, you will primarily be drawing blood samples from patients to test for illness and health conditions. Depending on where you work, you may also be entering patient, specimen and insurance information into billing systems; organizing blood-drawing trays; and taking inventories of and sterilizing equipment.
While training to be a phlebotomist at IMBC Erie, you will take courses in Anatomy and Physiology, Medical Terminology, and Medical Law and Ethics as well as receive in-depth, hands on experience in our fully equipped school labs.
We will give you the skills you need to be accurate and professional, and to maintain confidentiality and good communication in the workplace. IMBC also teaches interviewing skills, human relations, resume preparation, team building, professional appearance and behavior, workplace dynamics and ethics, and development of good work habits – all to help you find and keep a job.
Our phlebotomy training internship program will bring all of your classroom and laboratory experience together, and let you practice your skills in a medical setting with professional supervision.
After completing our phlebotomy training program, you will be fully prepared to take one of the certification exams necessary to become a Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT) or the Registered Phlebotomy Technician (RPT). Certification Exams are not required for employment; however, employers understand students passing voluntary, third party, certification exams validate their competencies, skills and abilities in the specialized field of study.
The phlebotomy training program is designed to provide the student with the knowledge and skills necessary to work as a phlebotomist in medical offices, clinics, hospitals, labs, research firms and other health agencies.
*Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT) is administered by the National Healthcareer Association. The Registered Phlebotomy Technologist (RPT) Certification is given by the American Medical Technologists. IMBC will pay for one of the certification exams for the student. Certification Exams are not required for employment; however, employers understand students passing voluntary, third party, certification exams validate their competencies, skills and abilities in the specialized field of study. IMBC believes students passing certification exams have a more competitive employment advantage for being hired over students with no certification!
