    Hey Pete:
    I don't know about Miami, but almost any community college offers a short course in phlebotomy (as they do in CPR and rescue, EMT training, that sort of thing), that would require about 6 weeks or so of classroom and lab training (sticking each other). At the end of the course usually you shadow a phlebotomist at a local hospital, and after you pass you have the option of taking the phlebotomy cert exam.
    However, if you work as a CNA or are in the nursing program, they will teach you how to draw blood and you don't really need the phlebotomy class.
    Take care,
