Where

 What I like about this class is that it is very interactive. I originally wanted to take this course online, but I am happy to have chosen this program instead. The hands-on experience is more helpful. It is a great learning experience!

Gain a distinct career advantage when you enroll in Manhattan Institute’s Phlebotomy Class. Complete your training in as little as 4 weeks. Day, evening, and weekend classes available.

Do you like a challenge and work well under pressure? Are you a good communicator who enjoys helping others?

Phlebotomy Technicians are in demand. According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of clinical lab workers—including Phlebotomy Technicians—is expected to grow as the volume of laboratory tests increases due to population growth, the aging population and the development of new types of tests. 

Our NY Phlebotomy Certification is your foundation for your career as a Phlebotomist. We offer hands-on training through classroom instruction. The Manhattan Institute Phlebotomy program prepares technicians to work in any medical setting: hospitals, laboratories, doctors’ offices, home health agencies, research clinics, blood banks and more.

Commonly Asked Questions

What is a Phlebotomy Technician?

A Phlebotomy Technician (also called a Phlebotomist, Blood Drawer, Patient Care Technician or Patient Care Aide) is an integral member of any health care team. The primary function of the Phlebotomy tech is to collect blood samples from patients via venipuncture or microtechniques. The Phlebotomist facilitates the collection and transportation of laboratory specimens and is often the patient’s only contact with the medical lab.  A Phlebotomy Technician also draws blood for transfusions, donations and research.

NY Phlebotomy Technicians must be responsible and enjoy a challenge. They must also be accurate, work well under pressure and communicate effectively. They are required to practice discretion and confidentiality at all times. To meet their patients’ needs, they must have strong interpersonal skills and be able to stay calm in stressful situations.

What does a Phlebotomy Technician do?

Duties performed by a NY Phlebotomy Tech differ according to the needs of different medical facilities, but here is a list of typical duties:

  • Draw blood from patients or donors
  • Assemble equipment (such as needles, blood collection devices, gauze, tourniquet, cotton, and alcohol)
  • Verify or record identity of patient or donor
  • Converse with patients to alleviate fear of procedure
  • Apply tourniquet to arm, locate vein, swab area with disinfectant, and insert needle into vein to draw blood into collection tube
  • Label and store blood container for processing
  • Conduct interviews, take vital signs and test blood samples to screen donors at a blood bank
  • Analyze information and make appropriate recommendations

Do I have to take a New York State License examination when I complete the Phlebotomy class?

In New York, there is no license, certification or exam required when you complete your Phlebotomy Technician course. When you finish your NY Phlebotomy certification, the Manhattan Institute will issue you a diploma.

I’ve already taken an allied medical course and some Phlebotomy Training was covered. However, I am not feeling confident as a Phlebotomist. How much training do I need to perform blood draws and the other tasks required of a Phlebotomist?

Phlebotomy is included in some allied medical and nurse courses, which is not job-specific to Phlebotomy. Before considering yourself qualified as a Phlebotomy Technician, you should have had practical experience in actual blood drawing, using training arms and/or patients under supervision.
