What You'll Study in Our Phlebotomist Certificate Program

DCC's phlebotomist certificate is just 28 credits and takes only two semesters to complete. At the program's end, you'll be eligible for national board examinations and ready to work in outpatient blood drawing centers, clinical laboratories or doctors' offices.
