Essential Information

Connecticut only has a few public and private not-for-profit schools that provide phlebotomy training programs, which are commonly found through continuing education or job training divisions of a school. Most phlebotomy programs require applicants to be 18 years old and be a high school graduate, have current immunizations and pass background checks. These programs include classroom and laboratory lessons, along with a clinical externship to allow for hands-on experience handling specimens.

While aspiring phlebotomists in Connecticut aren't required to be licensed by the state to practice, certification by organizations like the American Society of Phlebotomy Technicians may be beneficial for employment.
