Continuing Education at GHC to offer Phlebotomy Technician Certification Training

The Georgia Highlands College (GHC) Center for Continuing and Professional Education (CCPE) will offer its Phlebotomy Technician Training Course this spring.

Students in the course will learn medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, infection control, safety precautions, as well as blood collection methods and procedures. Additionally, students will have ample opportunity to practice venipuncture and blood collection skills during classroom labs.

“In today’s job market, Phlebotomy Technicians are in demand,” CCPE Manager Whitney Puckett said. “There are currently more than 80 jobs posted on for Bartow and Floyd Counties.”

Included in the program are online learning, lab supplies and the National Healthcareer Association Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT) exam and exam preparation materials. An interest-free  payment plan through Career Training Solutions is available with no credit check or income verification.
