The time I spent at CLC in the Phlebotomy Program was the best year of schooling I ever received. Everyday I learned new information in a fun way, with people I truly enjoyed being with. There was a great balance between in-class learning and hands-on experiences. The instructor Dawn Michel was very informing and encouraging, and for once, I felt like I had a teacher who cared and wanted to see me succeed. I have since been able to take that knowledge and begin a career. Everyday I do my work, I am thankful for what I have learned at CLC. Being able to have the proper knowledge and training has set me up with a great career and an amazing future for me and my family.
I took the Phlebotomy course through CLC in Fall 2014. The course was everything I thought it would be and more. I am now a phlebotomist at a local hospital. It was great to be able to walk into a hospital and clinic and be able to do my job well. The head of the lab is continuously praising this program; she loves to get interns that have completed the CLC Phlebotomy Program.
