Phlebotomy Technician Certificate

  • Beginning fall 2021, all Health and Human Services students participating in off-site clinical placements must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
  • Moraine Park Technical College establishes our student vaccination/immunization requirements by aligning with the requirements of the most restrictive health agency utilized for clinical placements.
  • All students participating in clinical must provide documentation of COVID-19 vaccination prior to being allowed at an off-site clinical location. Dependent upon the agency placed, a student may be able to receive a health/religious exemption for the COVID-19 vaccination.
  • Failure to vaccinate may impact the ability to progress in your chosen health program.
  • If you have questions or need a health/religious exemption, please contact Danielle Rhoads. Approval of an MPTC Exception does not ensure that you will receive approval from your assigned clinical/internship site, as their exception standards may differ from those used by MPTC.

Become a phlebotomy technician in less than a year with a certificate from Moraine Park Technical College.

About the Program

Phlebotomists play an important role in the medical field through the collection of blood and other patient samples for medical testing and diagnosis, as well as for donation to blood banks.

Become a phlebotomist with Moraine Park’s two-course certificate, which prepares individuals to collect blood specimens via venipuncture and capillary puncture procedures for the purposes of laboratory analysis.

Upon completion of the certificate, students may take the national certification examination offered by the Board of Certification.

What You’ll Learn

The phlebotomy courses are taken in sequence over two semesters and give students a basic understanding of laboratory equipment, as well as medical terminology. The first course, Phlebotomy Essentials, provides students with theory, safety techniques and regulations, infection control, and procedural applications and training. The second course, Phlebotomy Clinical, places students at clinical sites. Travel is required for clinical sites, and clinical times may vary.
