Three major organizations are National Phlebotomy Association, Society of Phlebotomy Technicians plus American Association for Clinical Pathology. Each organization has specific requirements concerning intership completion, number of successful blood collections, number of hours spent on practical training, number of hours spent in the classroom plus professional membership. Also, they give different examinations. Students are advised to find out the requirements of each association.
