OPELOUSAS – South Louisiana Community College will offer a Phlebotomy Technician course at its campus in Opelousas starting in November. This program will provide students with the information and skills needed to collect blood specimens in a healthcare setting.

In this 10-week course at the T.H. Harris Campus, students will have eight weeks of classroom training and two weeks of clinical training where they will learn the technical and procedural aspects of basic phlebotomy. Books and a test voucher for the Phlebotomy Technician Certification (CPT) are included in the tuition.


According the Bureau of Labor, employment of phlebotomists is projected to grow 23 percent from 2018 to 2028. Hospitals, diagnostic laboratories, blood donor centers, and other locations will need phlebotomists to perform bloodwork.

For those interested in enrolling in the Phlebotomy Technician program, an information session will be held on Monday, October 28 from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the T.H. Harris campus. Attendees will be able to speak with the Phlebotomy instructor, learn about the program, and hear about tuition assistance options. 

“With a growing healthcare industry, our Phlebotomy Technician program will help train individuals for in-demand jobs. We are confident that this program will prepare students to become successful in the Phlebotomy industry,” stated Kala Marks, healthcare program manager for SLCC’s Corporate College.

SLCC’s Corporate College was established in 2015. This division of SLCC offers short-term training for in-demand jobs to meet the needs of the community’s workforce.
