What are the requirements for phlebotomy certification?

The requirements for phlebotomy certification vary depending on the certifying organization. However, common requirements typically include completion of an accredited phlebotomy training program, which may range from a few weeks to several months in duration, and a specified number of successful venipunctures and skin punctures performed under supervision. Candidates must also pass a certification exam, which assesses knowledge and competency in various aspects of phlebotomy practice, such as anatomy and physiology, venipuncture techniques, specimen handling, and safety protocols.
