Phlebotomy Certification

Our Phlebotomy program is the perfect first step into healthcare. Phlebotomy is the technique of obtaining blood from a vein or skin puncture for laboratory analysis, which aids in the patient’s diagnosis. The Carolinas College Phlebotomy program is approved by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences.

Phlebotomists are the behind-the-scenes heroes of laboratory science, as the diagnosis of a patient is dependent on the quality of blood specimens available.

Heather Freire, Phlebotomy alumna

Heather Freire had been debating a career change, and the idea of a stable, rewarding career in healthcare was always on her mind. So, she enrolled in the Carolinas College Phlebotomy program, a fast-paced 200-hour program that prepares students for national certification.

After graduation, Heather stepped right into a job at Atrium Health. "My favorite part was having a positive atmosphere and supportive instructor," she says. "Now, I thoroughly enjoy my job, the patients, and the people I work with."
