Garrett College recognizes Phlebotomy students

Students enrolled in the phlebotomy program at Garrett College recently completed their training. Now in its fourth year, the phlebotomy program, offered through the College’s Continuing Education & Workforce Development division, includes a 69-hour classroom and lab section followed by an externship. Each student will work in the field, or a medical site or facility, alongside a certified phlebotomist while improving his or skills.

Upon completion of the externship, students are eligible to sit for the Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT) exam to earn national certification through the National Healthcareer Association. This standalone phlebotomy program is taught along with the Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA) program making the total student enrollment at 16 this year.

The next phlebotomy course is scheduled to start this coming November and will be offered on the following days and times: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. at the Garrett College Career Technology Training Center in Accident.

The Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA) course is slated to begin in September at the same location. For additional information on both courses and programs, including registration, contact Doug Beitzel, program coordinator at 301-387-3772 or
