(Riverton, Wyo) – Central Wyoming College is offering two new programs in the health science division. Call to register immediately!

Phlebotomy: Is a new class in which students learn the fundamentals of laboratory skills. These include collecting specimens for laboratory analysis, venipuncture, vitals and EKG’s, running CLIA waived tests and electronic records.

After the 15 week course which meets every Friday afternoon, students will be partnered with an internship site and complete 100 hours of practical experience. Once students pass the class they are eligible to sit for the national exam to earn the certificate.

According to the Bureau of Labor phlebotomy jobs have an expected growth rate over the next 10 years of 27% nationwide.


Medical Assisting: This is a yearlong program that includes studies in the administrative, laboratory and clinical aspects of working in clinics. Students train in clinical procedures including sterile procedures, minor surgery assisting, vitals, patient intakes, common clinical procedures and electronic medical records.

With the change in healthcare that we have seen over the last few years, most physicians are requiring their staff to be certified. After completing and passing all courses students are eligible to take the NCCT national exam and become certified. This certification is recognized throughout the US. This program is also accredited through NCCT.

The forecast from the Bureau of Labor has the MA profession as a 29% growth over the next 10 years nationwide.

Kristy Jones, CMA, is the instructor for these courses. She has over 30 years of experience in the medical field. In Oregon Kristy graduated from Portland Community College and taught for several years at Mt. Hood Community College.
