For phlebotomists that lost or misplaced their phlebotomy certification CDPH has a verification page.

PRACTICING PHLEBOTOMY IN CALIFORNIA WITHOUT A CPT LICENSE

It is illegal to perform blood draws in the State of California without having a valid and active phlebotomy CPT I or CPT II license. For phlebotomy license renewals a sixty-day grace period is granted allowing the State of California and Department of Public Health Laboratory Field Services processing time. A phlebotomist can still draw blood and work during the grace period. Please note that the grace period is not granted to every phlebotomy technician.

THE NEED FOR PHLEBOTOMY CONTINUING EDUCATION

Phlebotomy continuing education is of the utmost importance to health care providers and laboratory supervisors. NPCE believes that no organization should offer phlebotomy certifications without first offering continuing education in phlebotomy, which is why we offer this in conjunction with institutions requiring it. We concentrate strictly on phlebotomy and ask for institutions’ support in continuing education credits and unit development.

Some of the benefits of phlebotomy continuing education may include an increase in job opportunities, an increased pay scale, job security, and increased expertise in phlebotomy. Once you have completed and passed the online phlebotomy continuing education exam, you will receive a certificate of completion.
