Phlebotomy Training

Phlebotomists are allied health professionals who draw blood from patients or blood donors for medical testing.

MACC's Phlebotomy training is one of only a few training opportunities in the state of Missouri that prepares students for the ASCP examination after successful completion of both MLT 260 and MLT 261.

Are you currently working as a phlebotomist but would like to increase your earning potential? Prospective students with a minimum 2 years professional experience as a working phlebotomist may request "Credit by Examination" in place of taking MLT 260. If successful, you will be required to take MLT 261 to be eligible to sit for the national certification exam.

Our curriculum covers core exam topics, i.e. vascular anatomy and physiology, blood collection theory and handling, safety, and applicable laws and regulations governing phlebotomy. In addition, students learn to draw blood in a variety of ways in the classroom and at affiliate sites.

MACC's Phlebotomy training consists of two 2-credit hour classes, both offered during the spring and fall semesters on Thursday evenings from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM, at our Mexico Campus.

MLT 260 Phlebotomy - Offered first 8 weeks
MLT 261 Advanced Phlebotomy - Offered second 8 weeks

In addition to the lecture portion of the courses, a laboratory component is required. Daytime availability is required for this component, but schedules will vary based on clinical affiliate needs. During this laboratory component is where you will complete the required 50 hours of clinical practice per course, for a total of 100 hours.
