Continuing Education

The Process

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.

Medically related In-Service education hours qualify as continuing education but must submitted as "Individual Non-ASPT CEU Credit". (Medically related is any education which deals with patient care and services.)


Obtaining CEUs

Our renewal period is between September 1 and November 30. Starting in July, we will be sending out our Renewal Newsletter explaining how to renew. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are a yearly requirement. There are a few different ways you can obtain your 6 CEUs. All CEU exams must be submitted with renewal fee between September 1 – November 30.  

Please note:  You must keep your record of your CEU test and submit during renewal season (September 1 thru November 30th) along with your renewal fees together at the same time.

You may attend an ASPT CEU event or you may download and complete an ASPT CEU test below. CEU tests and manuals should be ordered by August.
