Why spend $1,750 to take a month-long certification class at VVC? Put simply: JOBS. Career paths in health care are particularly hot right now and overall demand is up for Certified Phlebotomy Technicians (CPT). In fact, according to the State of California’s Employment Development’s Occupational Guides:
Employment opportunities for Phlebotomists are expected to be comparable to the demand for skilled laboratory personnel. Overall, the need for these workers is expected to increase over the next decade due to the rapidly growing older population and the resulting demand for testing that requires blood specimens.
Phlebotomy offers multiple tracks to a lucrative and stable career in health care. In fact, may people start out as CPT 1A and move on to Lab Techs, Registered Nurses, and other professionals in the health care field. Your next questions is probably: “What does it pay?” The BLS has the national hourly median wage for Phlebotomists at more that $22 and entry-level positions in the Victor Valley start between $12-$15 per hour.
Let’s be conservative and say you get an entry-level job at $12 per hour. That means, your $1,750 educational investment is paid off in a little less than four weeks. Not bad and I challenge you to find a faster return on educational investment that our Certified Phlebotomy Technician training program!
