Frequently Asked Questions

What is Phlebotomy?

Phlebotomy literally means “to cut a vein” in Greek.  It is the process of making an incision (we call it a puncture) in a vein for the purpose of collecting blood.  A person who performs phlebotomy is termed a Phlebotomist.

Is full payment required up front? Do you have a payment plan?

The majority of students pay the full cost of the course up front.  For those who would like to pay incrementally, we do offer a payment plan, as follows:

  • Minimum deposit (varies by state) due at the time of Registration and Pre-Registration is required for all classes.
  • The balance of the tuition is due at the end of the classroom portion of the course and prior to taking the National Certification exam.
  • Students cannot take the National Certification exam until the tuition is paid in full.

Please call our financial office with any questions at 844-880-1103.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. We have flexible payment plans as well!

What if I don't like to have my own blood drawn?

We advise you to participate in having your blood drawn in order to understand what others experience, when you draw their blood. Instead of declining to participate at all, you may just limit the number of times you have your own blood drawn.

What if I don’t feel comfortable drawing blood even after I’ve completed the course?

At the end of the course, if you don’t feel comfortable drawing blood, we invite you to come back through the course for FREE as many times as you need to. Or if you need some quick practice before a job interview, you can contact our staff for an appointment to practice drawing blood. Remember, our goal is to make you an incredible, professional Phlebotomist, and we will do everything we can to help you.

Do you do job placement?

We do not offer job placement; however, we do offer training to help you get a job. During the course, we will cover how and where to get a job.

Can I miss any classes?

Outside of the first week, you cannot miss a class and still complete the course that month. Because the class is so short, every class period contains vital information. The first week is open enrollment, (excluding weekend classes) so if you miss the first class, you can still come anytime during the first two day classes or the first three nights classes and still complete the class in that month. The November and December courses are condensed to the first two weeks of the month as not to conflict with the holidays.

What are the prerequisites?

There are no prerequisites for our courses. Our National class is tailored to those who are new to the medical field or who have never drawn blood before. And we guarantee you will be an expert at the end of your time with us!
