The Phlebotomy Technician I program follows guidelines established by the California Department of Public Health Laboratory Field Services in preparation for the state and national phlebotomy technician certification exams and employment as a certified phlebotomy technician.  The program focuses on state-identified topics of basic anatomy and medical terminology, infection control, and procedures necessary to appropriately collect laboratory specimens and communication with patients. This program will prepare the certified phlebotomy technician to work in a clinical laboratory environment and healthcare setting.
