HACC, Lebanon High School Partner to Help Meet Demand for Phlebotomy Technicians
LEBANON, Pa. – Job seekers interested in healthcare can start their career and help fill staffing shortages in Lebanon County by enrolling in HACC’s Phlebotomy Technician Certificate Program.

HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, and Lebanon High School have partnered to offer the short-term certificate program to recent high school graduates and members of the Lebanon community at HACC’s Lebanon Campus. The next class starts on July 18 and ends on Nov. 3, 2022.

Earning a credential as a phlebotomist, a high-demand healthcare support occupation, can provide family-sustaining wages and benefits for those who want to quickly enter the workforce.

HACC’s program provides classroom education and real-life experience with job readiness skills training that prepare graduates to be front-runner candidates for open positions in the county’s healthcare systems and independent labs.

As part of the program, students complete a two-week clinical rotation at a variety of healthcare settings that include inpatient hospital, outpatient settings, draw sites and clinics. At the completion of the program, successful graduates sit for the National Health Career Association (NHA) Phlebotomy Technician certification examination.

Funding may be available for eligible Lebanon County residents. For more information about funding or the program, please email or call 717-221-1354.
