American Academy of Phlebotomy Technicians

Considering Phlebotomy?

A recent study predicts that the U.S. economy will need 5.6 million more healthcare workers in the next eight years, and most of the workers will need to have a post-secondary education or training. In fact, The Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce predicts 82% of those positions will require extra schooling or training by 2020. For technical and professional occupations, the requirements rise, as 94% will need the extra schooling or training. Employment of phlebotomists is projected to grow 27 percent from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. 

Hospitals, diagnostic laboratories, blood donor centers, and other locations will need phlebotomists to perform blood work!

FAQ's

What is the process for taking the national certification for phlebotomy exam?

To take the exam you have to provide evidence that you have completed an AAPT approved Phlebotomy Technician program or provide evidence that you have worked for one year, full time with a minimum of 2080 hours with phlebotomy as one of your primary duties.

Is certification mandatory in all states?

Certification tells prospective employers that you have met the minimum requirements by a recognized certifying body and that you are very serious about your career in the laboratory. At the present time only a few states mandate that personnel that collect blood samples obtain a State license to draw blood. On the other hand, some states and employers may require that personnel obtain national certification by a recognized body. You are encouraged to check your state regulations.

What do I do if my certification has expired?

If it has been less than a year since your certification has expired you are eligible to reinstate by submitting your CEUs and paying the late fees along with your biennial dues. If it has been over a year you will be required to sit for the exam again.

How do perspective employers verify a member’s certification?

Employers are able to go directly to the website and submit the require information and we will verify the information within 48 hours. If the member completed a release form, the employer can call 410-347-1433 to obtain the verification.

Can anyone from the general public attend AAPT’s phlebotomy training program?

The phlebotomy workshop is open to American Academy Phlebotomy Technicians active members and medical professionals with previous phlebotomy experience who provide a letter from their employer. The prior experience includes but is not limited to previously attending a phlebotomy program, medical professionals such as medical assistants, EMTs and other professionals with job responsibilities that include collecting blood samples by venipuncture or capillary method.
