Phlebotomy Technician I


To conduct medical education in the context of service to medical personnel as well as the general public so as to train persons to provide this service with skill and competence to this and other underserved populations.

The Phlebotomist’s primary role is to collect blood for accurate and reliable test results as quickly as possible. Medical diagnosis depends heavily on safe and accurate blood test. The Phlebotomist is trained to perform such test in a manor that is safe for both him/her and the patient. The Phlebotomist will be hired to perform his/her skills in laboratories, clinics, doctor’s offices, hospitals, and mobile labs. You will work in close proximity with other health care providers.

COVID 19 guidelines:  We are following the guidelines set by the CDC.


Allied Professional Institute, an approved private postsecondary school with the state of California and approved through the Department of Public Health, Laboratory Field Services, offers a 20, 40, and 80 hour course in phlebotomy. 40 hours didactic and 40 hours practical. This course is for persons with less than 1040 hours of on the job experience. The student must perform 50 venipunctures and 10 skin punctures on patients of all ages and weight categories. The 40 hour didactic course is for Medical Assistants with less than 5 years of phlebotomy experience or more than 1040 hours of on-the-job experience. The individual will receive lectures in preparation for the up coming licensing exam required by the State of California.

The 20 hour Advance course is for persons with 1040 hours or more of on-the-job experience, 6 months of paid phlebotomy experience, or volunteer phlebotomy experience and have performed a minimum of 50 venipunctures and 10 skin punctures on patients of all ages and weight categories over the past 5 years or have been working as a phlebotomist.

The student will receive a certificate of completion upon successfully passing the course and will be eligible to take national exam. Once the student passes the National exam, which we give once a month, they can apply to the State of California for their Certified Phlebotomy Technician 1 certification.
