Phlebotomists often have benefit packages from employers, sometimes including tuition reimbursement for further medical education. The Phlebotomy Program Director actively collects jobs opportunities and posts them on the Weatherford College Phlebotomy Facebook Group.  

Program graduates are employed throughout the North Central Texas area, or in other states. The need for Certified Phlebotomy Technicians is growing. Phlebotomy graduates will find employment in a variety of medical settings such as rural and urban hospitals, laboratory collection centers and physician office collection areas. California and certain other states require specific licensure for Phlebotomists. Investigate state-specific regulations prior to enrolling in this program.
