They are a vital member of the clinical lab team who performs clinical, technical, and clerical functions. Upon completion of this class, students will be prepared to take the ASCP or NHA certification exam and work in physician offices, blood donation clinics, diagnostic labs, insurance companies, or as a traveling phlebotomist.
