Georgia’s growth rate for new phlebotomy jobs and program availability correspond to average numbers across the nation.

Still, the cost of living is pretty reasonable and is slightly below the national average, which makes it a decent place to start a phlebotomy career.

Training to become a phlebotomist in The Peach State will usually mean enrolment to a certificate program that lasts two semesters or six semester hours.

About 65% of all curriculum is spent in clinical setting practicing blood drawing skills.

Pre-requisites include a GPA of 2.0, a high-school diploma or GED is usually enough to get you admitted. That’s for academic requirements. Also, successful candidates must have their immunizations done and their medical exams passed.

This is important since phlebotomists are sometimes expected to work extended hours, can stand a lot, and should be able to carry at least 30 lbs. without assistance.
