    • I am very happy with the training I received at The Phlebotomy Training Center. Michael and his staff were very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. This was an amazing program that changed the direction of my life.

    • The experience I have gotten has been wonderful. I am definitely glad I have finally taken this step and gone to school to become a phlebotomist. I love it and I do feel like this is the job for me. I have been a CNA for twelve years and I am happy to carry on my career in the medical field. I am excited to start on the new chapter in my life, a phlebotomist.

    • I am a former Student of this program who just graduated in May 2016. I found this school to be amazing in helping me achieve my certification and pursue my career as a phlebotomist. The founder/professor of this school, Michael, and his staff are phenomenal. Michael is very professional to his students and is willing to go out of his way to help in anyway that he can. Also The Phlebotomy Training Center is a creditable school to all employers. I did my clinical at St. Margaret’s UPMC Hospital and got offered a full time job right off the bat. Michael gave me all the skills I needed to preform my job as a phlebotomist!

    • I was offered a position multiple times and was told I was one of the best students they ever had. It made me happy that I was able to give them a good representation of both myself and my school.

    • Today I also met a woman who took the class at The Phlebotomy Training Center in the 90’s, so it was fun to see what things we did the same and what we did different. All in all my clinicals were very successful in my opinion and I loved every moment of it, I think I will be very happy with this career path that I have chosen.

    • This school was one of the most professional, talented, and educated schools I have ever attended. Professor Michael and his assistants couldn’t have done it any better than they did. Not only do they teach all you need to know but they also work with building your confidence when performing venipuncture as one will experience the nervousness and fear when starting out. Know that you will not only gain book knowledge, but also physical knowledge. You WILL learn all you need to know and then some. It was a cool and fun experience. You won’t regret it if this is something you have interest in.
