    Indiana School of Phlebotomy is an Office of Career and Technical Schools accredited institution offering certificates in Phlebotomy. Students who have successfully completed the Accelerated Phlebotomy program and completed the minimum number of procedures required by the NHA may choose to sit for an accredited national certification examination through the National Healthcareer Association (NHA) to become a Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT). This is optional and employment is not contingent upon successful completion, although it may make an individual more competitive in the job market. If you desire certification and are unable to complete the minimum number of procedures on your own, please let us know prior to enrollment and additional skills sessions will be scheduled after successful completion of the program.
