Hi I'm Elora Murray at Fusion 360 Studios reporting for the Phlebotomy Training News Network Today we are discussing some facts behind phlebotomy certification. The ASCP, NAPT and NHA are among the organizations that provide phlebotomy certifications. A phlebotomy certification is required to work in California, Louisiana, Florida, Washington and Nevada. California also requires a state certification to work as a phlebotomist technician in that state.In addition, certified phlebotomists typically earn higher starting wages than those that are not certified.Also, many employers prefer phlebotomists who have received a National Certification.To become certified, one must take an exam after completing a phlebotomy.
Training course.Certifications typically need to be renewed every two years.Finally, Phlebotomists usually need to have completed a few hours of continuing education to recertify. That's all the news we have for you today. Im Elora Murray with the Phlebotomy Training News Network. Thanks for joining us.
AMTI Student Spotlight Beth Calhoun
I'm Beth Calhoun. I studied Phlebotomy and I went through the MLA course, Medical Lab Assistant. The Medical Lab Assistant class was the greatest. I had a lot of fun doing the actual lab part of it; Streaking plates, making smears. It was a lot of fun to actually see where your phlebotomy samples wound up and how they got there. I was very fortunate when I first found out about AMTI, I actually had done a internet search trying to find schools in the valley and I came across AMTI.
And this has been my home ever since. I started with my Phlebotomy class here and I really wanted to come back and so I furthered with my MLA. My clinical externship right now, I'm at Lab Express on 5th McDowell I currently work in all departments and I kinda am a tool of all trades. Wherever they need me is where I go. Right now my focus is on hematology I help load the machine. I help pull the samples off the machine as well as I give the results to the.

(Dan:) I collect specimens and put it in the right tubes, so it's processed right, and we get accurate lab results. (Jessica:) In the actual basic lab phlebotomy course, you start out by learning all the safety; then you learn all the different kind of anatomy of it all, then we take all the actual equipment and learn it on the models, by giving a puncture or a capillary puncture, blood glucose testing. (Dan:) It's part of doing something that's vital.
To get the accurate results for making someone better. (Jessica:) You do practice; we have three hours a week for your actual basic lab class. You practice, practice, practice, so you get a routine of all your procedures. (Dan:) You don't get a lot of chance of actual drawing blood from people until you actually do your clinicals; it gave me the things that I needed to do the job, the experiences came as time went on.
