Does anyone know of a phlebotomy training program in or close to Orlando?
I really appreciate any replies to this,
In Deland (Volusia County) they have a 2 year phlebotomy degree at Angley College. In FL, you're not required to have the 2 year degree though. You can check with the Allied Health Dept of your local community colleges and see if they offer the course. At my school (Daytona Beach CC) they offer a 4 week course and you get a certificate of completion. MUCH cheaper than the 2 year route. Good luck.
Hello and thanks for answering my post, :balloons:
After you completed that program were you able to be employed as a phlebotomist? And if you know, how much do beginning phlebotimists get paid?
Thank you sooo much!
I appreciate any information anyone else can provide!

Angley College is opening a campus in Orlando in about 2 weeks, so I went and asked questions about their program. It takes 90 days to complete the phlebotomy training and guess how much it costs? $$$$3350 are they crazy? That's completely ridiculous!

Try looking into nursingunlimited.com. You will have to travel for it, but they do offer classes in the Northern Palm Beach area. Their prices are much more reasonable, they have excellents teachers, and advertise a stress free learning experience. I just got IV certified through them and it was way better than the classes I'm used to in school. If you don't mind the drive or have friends in this area they have a wonderful program.
A bit of searching came up with this list for Florida.

BREVARD COMMUNITY COLLEGE
INDIAN RIVER COMMUNITY COLLEGE

You should try http://www.cnabootcamp.com/cna%20bootcamp_002c.htm they offer a one day class to get you certified. After you work for a year as a phlebotomist you can apply for the license with http://www.aspt.org/ that is what I am going to do. I called the local and they said that they do hire with a phlebotomy certification so it is all ligit. The certification lets you work in the state of florida. The license lets you work nation wide. Once you have your license it is a lot easier to get jobs as a phelobotomist. Also... if you attend a college to get your certification you still have to work for a year to apply for the ASPT license. This just seems much easier and a LOT cheaper. Also the CNA boot camp website also offers EKG... And once you have that and work with the EKG you can take other tests threw ASPT to become a Patient care technition 1,2, or 3. there are a lot of loopholes of getting out of going to college to become a phlebotomist or PCT or what ever.... Good Luck... Maybe ill see you at their class.... maybe this month or next... money is tight.... lol :typing
ALSO DO NOT GO TO ANGLEY.... I went ther for medical assisting and they are a big rip off. they are accredited dont get me wrong but the prices HIGH and they LIE about their classes... they promised me 2 classes a month and that did not happen. first month I got 2 classes, second month I got one class, 3rd month I HAD NONE, they didnt schedule me any... they wanted me to atted ONE night class wich i COULD NOT DO.... I told them to shove it.... and now they claim i owe them almost 3,000 for one semester even tho i had finiancial aide and student loans!!!!!!!:argue:
Orlando Academy School of Health Professions in Orlando, FL provides an accelerated 2-wk Phlebotomy program for only $550. www.medicalcareeracademy.com
It met on campus for the 2-wk period about 4 hours a day. You can sit for the national certification exam as a Certified Clinical Phlebotomy Technician after completing the 2-wk course. I think they also have a regular 8-wk program if you need more foundation. The instructors were awesome! Very professional and great hands-on instruction. Hope this helps.
Hello, I want to get a Certification in Phlebotomy, but my question is, after I invest in this program is it very difficult to get hired? I don't see a lot of job postings for the Kissimmee/Orlando area, and when I find them it seems that you need to have more than 100 successful blood drawings. Some of those job postings say that you also need to provide a job history in Phlebotomy. So... if you just got the certification, how do you get your first job? Is it worth it to invest in getting a certification even though is that hard to get a job. Does anyone have any useful information? Thank you so much...
That is a good question, which I too would like to know the answer to!
