The online is set up with a user friendly interface. One does not have to be a computer expert. The lessons consist of our recorded classroom videos, practice quizzes and reading. The course is rigorous and is set up so that students learn as much as possible. Quizzes can be taken as many times as the student likes.
Upon registration, one of our instructors will be reaching out to you with a welcome email. This is not automated. Our instructors are assigned to each new student who enrolls online and then they must reach out to the student with an email and course attachments, students login username and password. If students register between 9-5 EST they will typically hear from their instructor within the hour. However, if you register at 3am, your instructor will send your welcome email in the morning.
Most students are able to set up their own username and password when they register. However, some students are so excited when they register, they sometimes forget. Your instructor is your guide throughout the course. You are not alone.
Internship/externship (Clinical Hours)
Phlebotomy Career Training has established and built long-standing relationships with hospitals and urgent cares throughout the entire United States. Since our students need a minimum of 204 clinical hours in the medical assistant field, it is important that students plan their schedule to complete these h hours in their six month time frame. Currently, the most popular location for our students are the urgent cares. We suggest that students begin their clinicals by the end of their second module. We do not control the hours that the clinical facility will assign the students. Students may find their own site should they choose to do so.
Clinical externships for our online students are no different than our in person students. There is a list of paperwork that the school will request from the students. Your instructor will go over this with the student individually.
Credit for Experience
Students who have prior experience can most definitely submit a resume or other document indicating any prior experience in health care. All experience counts! Some students have prior experience taking care of loved ones and have been responsible for medical procedures such as starting IV’s, changing Foley catheters or cleaning tracheostomies. Some students have experience as nurses aides, EMT’s, Para Medics or Physical Therapy Assistants. We encourage all students with prior experience to reach out to their instructor to have their experience evaluated. The best news for those who already work in the field is that all their hours can be waived as long as they have supporting documentation from their employers. These students need only finish the online work and then go straight to the national exam.
Keep in mind, Phlebotomy Career Training only pays for one attempt at the national exam. However, all our materials online will prepare students to pass their national exam. Phlebotomy Career Training has a 90% pass rate for the national exams.
How to Enroll
Once students enroll online, the instructor will send out an email introducing themselves and helping them with their course login and materials. Students may click the add to cart button and go through the check out process. Your instructor will send out a student contract in the “Student Welcome email”.

Students have 6 Months of Uninterrupted Course Access
Students will have unlimited access to all courses as well as instructor access. Students study on their own time at their own pace and can reach out to their teacher whenever they have a question. Students are given 6 months to complete the course, but can finish sooner. Students will need to complete 204 hours of clinical rotation. The school will provide students with a letter of introduction and a formal externship booklet that will be signed off by the students preceptor during their clinical rotation. Student who have prior experience in the medical field may submit documentation. This documentation may include a formal letter documenting the students experience and how their experience coincides with the duties of a medical assistant, transcripts from an healthcare program, EMT or Paramedic training and or license, or nursing school course work will be evaluated to determine if the 204 hours of rotation can be waived.
Some students like to meet with their instructors occasionally via Zoom. Our instructors are most happy to schedule a meeting. We ask that students give their instructors a least a 3 day notice for a online meeting via Zoom. These meetings have to be set up via our Technician Department.
We Pay for your National Accredited Exam
We at Phlebotomy Career Training understand the need for our online students to have a opportunity to take their national accredited certification exam. Which is why, Phlebotomy Career Training will pay for the exam within the six month time frame. Taking the national exam ensures that students will have the highest level of certification and that their certification will be accepted wherever they go, whether in their state or another state. We have partnered with some of the best and most recognized national accredited organizations known for their national exam recognition throughout the United States.
Once the students have passed their final and completed their clinicals, Phlebotomy Career Training will reach out to the student and inquire as to which national exam they would like to take. We are adding more hours in the next few months to our medical assistant program so that we will also be accepted by the AMT for national accreditation. Exciting!
