Program:

It is optional in Kentucky to earn a phlebotomy certification, although some employers require this credential.  The American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) allows candidates who have been certified as Medical Laboratory Technicians and Donor Phlebotomy Technicians to also become Phlebotomists. Other than having to complete 100 successful blood draws, there is no additional training. By having a Kentucky phlebotomy certification, employers know a person has the formal training to be successful at this job.

The American Society for Clinical Pathology is one of nine agencies that licenses and certifies phlebotomists for practice. Anyone who wishes to be certified as a phlebotomist through the ASCP has to take the Technician Certification Exam.

Exam Requirements:

        1. Education. Applicants must have received a high school diploma and gone through a legitimate, NAACLS-approved phlebotomy program before taking the exam.
        2. Training. Candidates must complete the required 100 hours of clinical laboratory experience, or have fulfilled one of the six “routes” detailed on the ASCP Web site (http://www.ascp.org/FunctionalNavigation/certification/GetCertified/TechnicianCertification.aspx).
        3. Provision of documents. If a candidate has gone through a formal education program, he must supply the ASCP with an official transcript, transcript evaluation, reference form completed by the employer, a letter of authenticity, and a notarized form of his RN or LPN certificate (RNs and LPNs only).
