Phlebotomy training in Bakersfield is offered at Liberty Career College, which claims it provides the premier state-approved phlebotomy training. Its edge is being affiliated with most hospitals in Kern County, giving its students the venue and opportunity to get their clinical training. Because Liberty maintains high standards, it requires applicants to the phlebotomy program to have prior medical experience and a minimum of 20 credits from college in the area of Human Anatomy and Medical Terminology. Clinical Training Institute has very stringent admission requirements as well. Its program consists of 40 hours of instruction, and students must first pass a certification exam before going on for externship that will lead to the licensure exam. Santa Rosa Junior College has the only state-approved (California Department of Health Services) phlebotomy certificate program in Sonoma County. The program is 8 to 10 weeks of intensive training consisting of both didactic and clinical components.
