Online Course Information

Learners should note that free online materials do not award university credit or grades to students who complete them. Regulation of phlebotomists varies by state, but credentialing usually requires completion of a formal training program and an exam. While the free learning materials outlined below may overlap with information found in formal training courses, they don't prepare learners to work as phlebotomists.

Online phlebotomy courses and materials can include quizzes, outlines, lecture notes and videos. Multimedia players and document readers are required in order to open some of these files.
