National Medical Certification Association (NMCA)’s Continuing Education Phlebotomy Certification Workshop designed for healthcare professionals is unique from all other phlebotomy training programs, because instead of requiring you to do weeks and months of training, we give you all the knowledge and skills you need in just a few days. Unlike other phlebotomy training programs who only have you practice on a phlebotomy training aid, we not only have you practice on a training aid to build up your confidence, but we also provide you with opportunity to do a live stick on a real person. Live “sticks” will be done in the class. These sticks include venipunctures and capillary sticks, and will not be done during an externship, but will be done on fellow students and yourself, in a very supervised setting. If you are not comfortable having someone draw your blood, please do not enroll for this class.You are not required to complete a clinical externship.  Our training program is built to combine the classroom and clinical experience in one. We offer the opportunity for our students to return, for the life of our program to get any additional practice wanted, for free
