)-- Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education and professional training, is proud to announce the launch of its new Phlebotomy Technician Program. Like all of Career Step’s programs, this program can be completed entirely online.
The Phlebotomy Technician program is an affordable and flexible way for students to train for a career in the healthcare industry. The course focuses on keeping pace with all of the blood work needed for analysis and diagnostic purposes by medical practices across the country.
“We are excited to add the new Phlebotomy Technician course to our growing list of career training programs within healthcare,” said Steve Tober, Career Step President and CEO. “The need for trained phlebotomists is expected to increase over the coming years as medical practices expand to meet the needs of an aging population. We are poised to help meet that need by offering this new program to our students,” said Tober.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, an additional 28,100 new phlebotomy technician jobs are expected to be added by 2024 - a 25% growth. The middle 50% of phlebotomy technicians earn $32,710 per year.
Students enrolling in the program will appreciate Career Step’s comprehensive curriculum developed by experienced industry professionals. The coursework is designed to give students the didactic training they need to take the Certified Phlebotomy Technician certification exam (CPT), and help them find a job quickly after graduation.
Career Step has been providing quality career education for 25 years with programs focused on high-growth healthcare fields that offer opportunities nationwide. The school is dedicated to delivering education with the single-minded focus of preparing students to start rewarding careers.
