Description of Phlebotomy Classes in Utah
To enable future phlebotomists enter the job market quickly, phlebotomy training programs in Utah schools are designed to be short-paced and teach only required theory and practical skills.

Utah Phlebotomy Certification and Licensure
License required: No
Certification required: No
No licensing and certification is required by the Utah State Department of Health to start practicing phlebotomy.
Given an impressive job growth and amount of new jobs created, you often can enter the workforce with no certification at all, or have on-the-job training.
Still, if you want to land a better job with better compensation package (and not just an average job) we recommend to get an ASCP or NHA phlebotomy certification right after your graduation from a phlebotomy training program.

Again, it has to do a lot with more job opportunities available for phlebotomists and new technicians entering the workforce.
