NorCal | Venipuncture Certification Course | March 20, 2021
Register today for CSRT's hybrid Venipuncture Certification Course! After reviewing the 12 recordings, completing the 12 quizzes, and attending a pre-virtual meeting, students will meet with CSRT Instructor Rich Lehrer at the Gurnick Academy of Medical Arts in Sacramento, California on Saturday, March 20, 2021.
This workshop satisfies the California legal requirement, which requires an approved venipuncture training course with a minimum of 10 hours of instruction in combination with supervised clinical practice and current CPR certification.
