Flexible Payment Plan

At Phlebotomy Training Specialists, we understand that each person has a unique set of circumstances, and we offer a payment plan to accommodate all potential students. Because we are a private institution, we DO NOT accept financial aid, however, we DO accept vouchers from third-party payers who are willing to pay for private education.


Our payment plan works by requiring ONLY the deposit to register and secure a seat in class. Students will then have from the day they pay the deposit up until the first day of class to pay their remaining balance. All tuition and fees are due at the time of the first class. We also allow and encourage registration up to 3 months in advance. This allows students ample time to make payments in order to be paid by the time their class starts.


We offer our students the freedom to decide when they would like to make payments and how much they would like to pay as long as the remaining balance is paid off by the time class begins. Students will not be able to attend class until they are paid in full. Payments can be made conveniently online with any major credit card at any time through the Student Portal, or over the phone with Student Services.

Externship Info


In the State of California, the California Department of Public Health requires every person wanting to become a licensed CPT1 Phlebotomist to perform a forty (40) hour volunteer externship at a state licensed and LFS approved facility as part of their education.

After you complete the Didactic portion of your education, provide proof of your NHA passing exam score, and execute the required Code of Ethics and other compliance documents, you will be cleared to be scheduled for your clinical externship. The externship team will then reach out to you to work out the details.

Phlebotomy Training Specialists (PTS) already has hundreds of approved sites and working agreements with approved sites all throughout the State of California to accommodate the state externship requirement.

Every Externship environment will vary in type and experience.  You will serve a minimum of forty (40) hours in a clinical setting. The experience should include the performance of venipunctures, skin punctures, observation of arterial punctures and the completion of the California Statement of Phlebotomy Practical Training signed by an MD, DO, PA, RN, CLB, CLS, or CPT.

Once all required documents are uploaded into your portal, PTS will work to find you an Externship. Please note that placement time can vary from three weeks to three months depending on your location in California.  Externships are typically done in one continuous week, Monday through Friday.  You will likely volunteer five (5) eight (8) hour shifts for five (5) consecutive days (typically 8am – 5pm or 9am – 6pm), which will meet the 40-hour State of California licensing requirement.  You have two (2) Years from the date you pass your NHA exam to complete your Externship and submit your certification documents to the State to get your licensing.
