The Phlebotomy Program offered at Kapi‘olani Community College (KCC) leads to employment as a phlebotomist. By completing the phlebotomy course, you will earn a Certificate of Competence. The program has two tracks, an apprenticeship track and an internship track. With either track, you must first complete the 110-hour classroom portion.

Apprenticeship Track

This path is an option for students who are already working as a phlebotomist. Students who are hired as a phlebotomist before beginning the classroom portion are eligible for the apprenticeship. The apprenticeship track includes two additional courses that the internship track does not- Computer Foundations and Customer Service.

Internship Track

The internship track is for students who are seeking employment as a phlebotomist. The internship program is 100 hours long lasting 2.5 weeks and begins following the completion of the phlebotomy program. The internship may be completed in a clinic, a hospital, or a patient service center.
