Note on HLT 105- Phlebotomy

The Phlebotomy course offered at Rock Valley College is Health 105 (HLT 105).  The class is always offered each fall and spring semester and sometimes it is offered in the summer if an instructor is available to teach it. The class taken by itself does not certify you, but it is still the starting point. Once the class is completed students will need to find an employer that will help them get 'supervised sticks' which will lead to certification.
