A career as a Phlebotomy Technician is a rewarding path for someone who desires to work directly with patients. Phlebotomy Technicians use care and skill to obtain blood specimens from patients for analysis in the clinical laboratory. Employment opportunities include, but are not limited to, hospitals, clinics, physicians' offices, reference laboratories, and donor centers. 

The semester-long phlebotomy courses (MLTP 101 Phlebotomy and MLTP 102 Applied Phlebotomy) are offered twice a year, once in the Fall and then again in the Spring. Although a certificate of completion is not conferred by CMU, students who complete both courses are eligible for national certification by examination for a Phlebotomy Technician (PBT) through the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP). 

Non-MLT majors and non-degree-seeking students may be accepted if seating and clinical sites are available. Application deadlines are March 15 for Fall (see note below) and October 15 for Spring courses. Applicants will be notified through their email accounts if they have been accepted or placed on an alternate list shortly after the application deadline has passed. Please read the Information Packet linked below for detailed information regarding the courses, application process, and national certification.

Note: The application deadline for the Fall 2024 semester has been extended. Students will need to attend the following group information session before placing an application. Applications will not be accepted from students who have not attended a session. Submitted applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until the course is filled. Full or partial tuition reimbursement will be granted through the Care Forward Colorado program for the Fall 2024 semester.

  • July 30th, 2024 1:00 pm-1:30 pm

The session will be held in room HS160, in the Department of Health Sciences building on the corner of 12th St. and Walnut Ave, Grand Junction.
