Working as a Paramedical Examiner can be an achievable way for a newly California Certified Phlebotomy Technician I to quickly start working.

Paramedical exam companies usually don’t require their examiners to have the 1-2 year’s blood draw experience that many clinics and hospitals demand.
Frequently these healthcare companies require their examiner’s to have only previous phlebotomy experience (which can amount to the experience gained through a graduating a phlebotomy training course and obtaining CPT-1 certification), knowing they’ll also provide their examiners with on-the-job training before they start performing exams.
Some Phlebotomists find being a Paramedical Examiner is the perfect job for them.
They quickly enjoy the patient interaction, the freedom the job allows, and the way they can fit the work around their personal life.
However, if working at a clinic or hospital is your goal as a Phlebotomist, starting out working as a Paramedical Examiner can put you on the right road.
Either way, getting hired as a Paramedical Examiner can be a fast-track way to establish a phlebotomy career that can take you places.
