Phlebotomy Training at RCC
convenient evening course begins November 6

RAMAPO – Opportunity is knocking in one of the fastest-growing occupations in the field of health care. Continuing Education at Rockland Community College is offering a 90-hour program to train students to become phlebotomy technicians. The class will meet twice a week in the evenings, beginning November 6 and continuing through February 28.

The RCC program prepares graduates to collect blood specimens from clients for the purpose of laboratory analysis. Graduates can work in hospitals, physician offices or independent labs.

Students taking the course gain familiarity with all aspects related to blood collection, and develop comprehensive skills to perform venipunctures completely and safely. Classroom and lab work includes terminology; anatomy and physiology; blood collection procedures; specimen hands-on practice; and training in skills and techniques to perform puncture methods. An externship rotation is not included.

Tuition is $1,999, including textbooks. A high school diploma or equivalent is required, and the minimum reading level necessary to enroll in this course is a 7.0. Once they complete the course, graduates will have the opportunity to pursue the NHA Phlebotomy Technician Exam.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of phlebotomists is projected to grow 24% through 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations.
