Isn't the class a 6 week class? Also When does the next class start, I have read up on the class and it says the cost is $500. Can you pay now, to make sure you get to be in the next class?

When do I need to apply? I really need to have this certification to go on and pursue my CLS degree.
Also, the FAFSA has an option for certificates, so if I declare Physician's Office Assistant as my goal at HCTC, wouldn't that include Phlebotomy??
fyi

You would have to take the longer class through the college. But it does include Phlebotomy.If you are wanting to work in a doctor's office, take the Physician's office Assistant class. It costs more,the class is longer, and the pay is less than if you work in a hospital.If you work at the hospital, the pay is good, but you are paid the same no matter which class you take. You would be better off taking the shorter, cheaper class. But you don't have the have a Phlebotomy or Physician's office Assistant to pursue the CLS degree. Phlebotomy is included. You need to talk to someone through UK about the CLS program, because they are not sure if they are bringing it back to Hazard yet.

I wasn't sure.
I have the brochure from the Physician's Office program and it had like 4 or 5 classes to it.
I thought about going to Southeast Community and Technical to get the CLS degree, and then transferring to University of Cincinnati for their Medical Lab Science program so I could be a MLS specialized in Chemistry.
I was just confused because the FAFSA had an option for certificates, so I thought it would pay for that.
I guess I should talk to someone at the college to find out when I need the money to register??
Thanks for all of the info as well as any more you all may have.

Good luck finding a job! Its very hard to find.. And when you do get cert.. go with ASCP.. its the best cert organization out there for the best pay.. but i just moved here and i have been looking for a phlebotomist job for almost 4 months.. everyone wants 2 years experience from as far as jackson to prestonsburg..i went to college for 6 months.. the best way is if you can get lab training in microbiology and urinaylisis too.. that may help and look good on a resume.. but good luck everyone ;)

Thanks. I wanted to be a Radiography Tech, but there aren't any jobs in that field either.
