Wyoming has limited options when it comes to Phlebotomy-specific programs with only one available. However, you can expand this selection by opting for an online course, or, choosing a more broad career like Medical Assistance.
As the programs are usually short-paced, after having a classroom course of Introduction to Phlebotomy, you will be heading to a clinical setting to complete a clinical practicum. Along the way, an introduction to software used in daily phlebotomy activities will be also made.
Depending on the college of your choice, you may be required to complete either a Psychology or Sociology course to get your diploma.
Requirements for enrolling in a phlebotomy training program in Wyoming are uniform to what you can see in neighboring states. These can include advanced background checks and drug-alcohol policies.
When it comes to academic requirements – these are pretty standard – GED or a high-school diploma.
Apart from that, you will need to provide proof of health insurance, all required vaccinations, and skin tests.
Courses with Phlebotomy components (either as a single or joint degree) are available in four cities – Casper, Riverton, Powell, and Sheridan.
