Program Overview

Two quarters
Do you have a desire to help people? If you enjoy close attention to detail and the ability to multitask in hospitals, clinics, blood banks, and laboratories then our Phlebotomy Program will prepare you for the skills needed for successful employment as a phlebotomist.

Seattle Vocational Institute’s (SVI) Phlebotomy Program is dedicated to presenting students with a wide-ranging skillset in a practical, professional manner. Our students will learn the skills needed to become a capable practitioner in the field of phlebotomy.

Further, our students will be trained in the use and application of electrocardiograms (ECGs), as the Washington State certification requires all phlebotomists to be proficient with this important piece of medical equipment.

A typical day on the job includes: Making sure a patient is calm and comfortable and safely drawing their blood for various lab tests and procedures.

Our Program Includes:

  • Daily phlebotomy functions
