How often do I need to renew my phlebotomy certification?

Phlebotomy certification must be renewed periodically to ensure that practitioners stay up-to-date with advancements in the field and maintain competency. Renewal requirements vary by certifying organization, but typically involve completing a certain number of continuing education credits and/or passing a recertification exam every few years. The renewal period may vary from one to three years, depending on the organization. It's important for certified phlebotomists to keep track of their certification expiration date and fulfill renewal requirements in a timely manner to avoid lapses in certification status.
