The Phlebotomy Technician Program offered at Hawaii Institute of Healthcare & Training Services (HIHTS) is a fifty (50) hours intensive course. About thirty (30%) percent of the class time is spent for classroom lecture, and lab work is seventy (70%) percent.

Under the careful supervision of a Certified Phlebotomy Technician or a Nurse Instructor, students will draw blood on each other. Students may also participate in a hospital laboratory or outpatient field trips. Students should complete at least thirty (30) blood draws to satisfy requirements for certification. Upon successful completion of the program, students are awarded a certificate.


(Optional) Another forty hours (40) externship is being offered to students who wish to do “hands-on” when a schedule is available with the affiliated facility. (For more, please see the Registrar).

Please note for the fulfillment of the class and national exam we suggest asking family and friends to come in as volunteers to draw blood for the experience you need to become a Phlebotomist.
