A fast track to a rewarding Health Career
Fast track to a rewarding career in health care by earning a phlebotomy certificate from CCC in just 6 months
Clackamas Community College (CCC) launched a new phlebotomy certificate. This program is designed to provide students with a fast track to a rewarding career in health care. With just 6 months of classes, individuals can become certified phlebotomists and join the vital health care workforce. Phlebotomists are highly trained professionals responsible for collecting blood samples from individuals. They play a crucial role in clinics, hospitals and laboratories, ensuring safe and accurate blood collection for medical purposes.
Phlebotomy technicians, as they are often referred to, not only collect blood but also prepare the samples for testing. Their responsibilities may extend to explaining the blood-drawing procedure to patients, helping to alleviate any concerns and ensuring a comfortable experience for those they serve.
Phlebotomy technicians find employment opportunities in various health care settings, like hospitals, clinics, doctors' offices, nursing homes, medical labs, blood donation centers, research institutes and insurance companies. They may work different shifts, including evenings, nights, weekends and holidays, and are often on their feet, interacting with patients or preparing samples for laboratory analysis. For those interested in pursuing this exciting career path, the application deadlines for the spring/summer cohort are Applications due February 26th. The program combines online learning with in-person skills labs, followed by a clinical practicum, ensuring students receive comprehensive training.
