Continuing Education/ Reinstatement/Keeping Certification Current

The Process

It's that time of year again!

 Don't forget to download your required 6 CEU's this year so you may re-certify for 2018.

Obtain CEU Credits

Continuing education is of the utmost importance to the health care provider and the supervisor. A.S.P.T. feels that no organization should offer certifications without offering education, and it is for this reason that we also offer to develop phlebotomy continuing education and other lab tech education in conjunction with institutions. The major difference is that we ask for the institution's support in program development.

The American Society of Phlebotomy Technicians, Inc. (A.S.P.T.) strives to provide an atmosphere of professionalism and confidence, as well as a sense of belonging and fellowship. The role of the health care provider is changing dramatically. ASPT is constantly 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. These Include Phlebotomist, EKG Technician, Patient Care Technician, and Medical Assistant. After completion of each program, a Certification Examination is offered. 

ASPT will also customize any program to meet the needs of individual facilities in cross training their health care providers. ASPT offers help in arranging CEU Days so our members can obtain their required 6 CEU's, or 6 Contact Hours, annually.


Obtaining CEUs & Renewing Certification Each Year

Our renewal period is between September 1 and November 30. Starting in mid-July, we will be sending out our Renewal Newsletter explaining how to renew.
