Phlebotomy Training

Phlebotomy Applications are due November 1st.

See below for application instructions.

Phlebotomists are health professionals who draw blood from patients or blood donors for medical testing. Does this sound like something you would like to do as a career or to start your profession in the medical field? Do you have an attention to detail, critical thinking skills, dependability, and ready to work in a face pace changing work environment?  Or are you interested in the medical field and don’t know where to start.  Then maybe the laboratory and phlebotomy are the right choice for you!

MACC’s Phlebotomy Certification Training Course is one of only a few training opportunities in the state of Missouri that prepares students for the ASCP examination. ASCP is the Gold Standard of the Laboratory Certification and the one most recognized nationally certification.

Our curriculum covers core exam topics including 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 clinical sites.

Please note, our phlebotomy program is not eligible for financial aid; however, grant money may be available to help cover costs should you be eligible. Please contact your local Job Center or Workforce Development for further information. Payment plan options are available through MACC Business Office. Business Office phone – 660-269-4440
