Advancement via Degree Programs
A Degree in Phlebotomy?
While a degree is not necessary to become a phlebotomist, many vocational training institutions offer degree programs in medical laboratory technology, or medical assisting where phlebotomy is included in the curriculum. Phlebotomists should also be CPR and First Aid certified.
Phlebotomy Continuing Education
Certified phlebotomists must partake in continuing education courses to maintain their professional credential. Those that are already trained and employed in the field may also find that supplemental training is available to benefit their personal and professional enhancement, or to cross-train into another related allied health profession.
