Phlebotomists are trained to draw blood samples from people of all ages for medical tests and blood donations. The Phlebotomy program at Harper College trains students in the techniques, procedures and safety precautions for drawing blood.

This 8-credit-hour certificate prepares students for immediate entry into a career as a phlebotomist at a hospital, commercial laboratory, clinic, blood bank or other health care setting.
