Founded in 1983, ASPT is the second oldest certifying agency of Phlebotomy. The society provides materials for continuing education, home study, and approves training programs and their instructors. The society stresses that professionalism begins with the certification process. Members who apply to take the certification examination will receive a free official study outline to help them prepare for the examination, to ensure that participants receive the latest information and training techniques.
The role of the health care professional is ever changing therefore, ASPT is continually developing new programs to meet these needs by offering our members the opportunity to cross-train in all areas in which they are now involved.
Our staff can provide assistance in arranging examinations in your area. You will need to provide a date, time, location, and qualified monitors. Eight weeks’ notice is needed in order for ASPT to provide service to you and any participant for the exam. Each participant will be expected to pay the membership and exam fees at least four weeks in advance.
We offer waivers to Senior Phlebotomist that are currently working in the field or that hold another current certification by another agency.
