Phlebotomy is a relatively easy healthcare profession to enter, as it requires minimal training and certification requirements. However, you are likely to find it hard initially as you have to find the right vein to stick and insert to draw blood, something that takes practice to master. You also have to get the right tubes from the lab, draw blood in the correct order, and get enough of it to run the tests ordered.
The good news is that all this can be learned in a program that emphasizes practical knowledge, such as our phlebotomy classes in Louisiana. You can start the journey towards a fulfilling career with great benefits by training with the Phlebotomy Training Specialists.

Phlebotomists are in demand in many hospital areas, which means you get a chance to work in the outpatient or outpatient wing, labs, infusion centers, or even urgent care. You will never be bored in such a dynamic work setting.

All you have to do is pay for registration fee and book a seat, and then you can pay any amount that will go towards clearing the remaining amount. Enrolling at least 3 months in advance will give you ample time to clear the remaining amount before the first class.
Theoretical knowledge in this field can only take you so far. You will have to rely on practical skills to get the job done. Our instructors teach from experience, having worked professionally as phlebotomists. We also allow students to perform blood draws as many times as it takes to master the skill and overcome fear and doubt.
