This program leads to applying for a license with Laboratory Field Services - State of California.
To become certified/licensed you must first successfully complete a state approved classroom and practical training program.
Liberty Career College is Bakersfield's premier "state-approved" Phlebotomy training school. We are affiliated with most hospitals in Kern County.
To enter this program you must have a high school diploma or GED. Additionally, we require that you have a previously completed vocational program (if it's a CNA program - applicants license must currently be active, OR a minimum of 20 college units in last 2 years with a "C" grade or higher . An Associates or Bachelor's Degreee is also acceptable regardless of when obtained.
We want to see that you have another completed vocational program to seek employment with OR a minimum of 20 college units in the last 2 years showing us that you are progressing towards higher education. More and more employers are wanting applicants to have a minimum of 1 year of experience. Without that it may take longer to find employment. We want to see our students working as quickly as possible and choose to enroll students responsiblily.
We see students working far faster as an MA and at the same time they are acquiring patient care experience and often times drawing blood at the facility where they were hired under the scope of a Medical Assistant (under the doctor's license).
We are the only training facility in Kern County with affiliations with most hospitals!!!!
We would like our students to have more than one job skill to seek employment as well as make themselves more diversified when seeking employment.
We have had many students with significant college credits with the ambition of becoming a Physician's Assistant. However, phlebotomy only does not meet the requirements of many PA programs. Most programs require that applicants have a minimum of 2000-3000 hours of "direct patient care" experience. Working as a Medical Assistant meets the requirement whereas Phlebotomy only usually does not.
