I actually was thinking about this school so I checked into the claim by M P. below. I called the Division of Consumer Protection, proprietary schools department. I spoke with the gal who said all the information at the bottom of their web site means is that they are not accredited by the United States Department of Education. Which means there are not college credits earned AND it is on the site of every Phlebotomy School in Utah... They all have to put that one their sites. After learning how off the previous post was, I called a few employers. Turns out many of them hire almost exclusively from this school. More than HALF of the employees at ARUP are from this school. I called Jordan Valley Hospital and they have 7 out of 10 employees who trained here. Heather the lab director I spoke with told me that she trained here. I checked out their Facebook Page and they make hundreds of announcements of people getting jobs almost daily in Utah. I also asked everywhere I called if I needed the "CLA" ... not one of the 10 places I called knew what that was. Just shows the internet is full of people who think they know everything and know nothing. Glad I checked this out ... Karen M.
Read carefully at the bottom of their website. They are not accredited. You get experience there, sure, but you don't get that one little piece of paper that matters which is a CLA (certified laboratory assistant) which makes you legally certified to be a laboratory assistant, which is a phlebotomist.
LOVED IT, GOT THE JOB I WANTED. So, class was good. I am not a good learner, but we went through the book together... that made it so much easier for me. I was able to understand the material. I have to say, the hands on activities were the most helpful by far. Everything was well understood but mostly the hands on activity made me remember what I learned in class. If you want to become a phlebotomist or cna, you would be very happy with Phlebotomy Training Specialists.
Excellent Utah Phlebotomy Certification Course. The class instruction was well balanced between book instruction, actual blood draw practices and instructor experiences. Definitely my favorite part was the hands on learning. We did a ton of hands on learning! I loved the course and I am now working as a Phlebotomist. Thanks!
RIP OFF ARTIST'S AT WORK. DO NOT PROVIDE THE SERVICE THEY ADVERTISE.. This business preys on young people trying to get a foot in the door of the medical field. Basically they use substandard instructors, shoty teaching methods and waste the time and money of students.
