CALIFORNIA PHLEBOTOMY TECHNICIAN CERTIFICATION APPLICATION

APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS
  • Applications will not be reviewed unless the proper $100 fee is submitted. This fee is non-refundable.


  • A valid social security number is mandatory for certification by the State of California. Please contact the U.S. Social Security Administration for further information on how to obtain a social security number.


  • It is the applicant's responsibility to make sure that the application and all other supporting documents are submitted in a timely manner. You must have all correspondence specify: "Attention: Phlebotomy Program". This will reduce the likelihood of receipt of the documents by other programs which in turn may cause a delay in the processing of your application.
  • ** i.e. official transcripts, verification of training and experience and certificate of completion of training course, two passport size photos and state approved examination.

HOW TO APPLY ONLINE
The application process requires two steps. The first step is to create an online account. The second step is to file an electronic online application. During this process, you will be instructed to establish your username and password. This unique and secure username and password will allow you to access your account at any time, make changes and view your status.

During the second step you actually apply for the certification online. You must complete all pertinent information in order for your application to be accepted by LFS. Currently, the application fee associated with the online registration must be paid using a valid Visa or MasterCard credit card.

At the end of your application process, you will be instructed to print an attestation page (a page that attests to the accuracy of all the information entered). You must mail this page to LFS along with all other documents which are required for certification as a phlebotomist. LFS will not review an application if an attestation page has not been received by LFS. Maintain a copy of the attestation page for your records. If you have already completed an application, you may log back into your account and select the option to reprint your attestation page.
