Phlebotomy Career Training understands the adult students need for a quality education, hands on learning atmosphere and fast track career path.

Professor Kimmel, director of the school, has complied all her years of experience as a university professor to build  courses with a curriculum designed to graduate proficient and competent students in their prospective medical field career choice.  Professor Kimmel has recently earned her MSN-FNP through Walden University, graduating Magnum Cum Laude with a 3.88 GPA.   She is now a Family Nurse Practitioner.  Professor Kimmel stated, “When exploring other schools and what they have to offer, each and every student should expect high quality education.  Students can be assured that they will receive the highest quality professional education at a 1/10 of the cost of most schools.  Why trust your training to others who have only minimal work experience and little to no teaching experience.  Instead, invest your hard earned money in a school where you will be trained by medical professionals who not only have done over 400,000 blood draws but have also university training and education to help each and every student achieve their goals and exceed their expectations.”


Professor Kimmel has written several books, Pass The N.E.T., EKG/Telemetry and Phlebotomy Career Training manual on Phlebotomy.  Professor Kimmel is also a Certified Hazardous Materials Manager, of which there are only 6000 across the world.  Professor Kimmel earned her CHMM through the Institute of Hazardous Materials in 2002 after earning her Ph.D in Environmental Engineering in 2002.  Each student graduating with the Hazardous Materials Handler program will receive Professor Kimmel’s seal from the I.H.M.M. embossed on their certification.

Professor Kimmel is the only one who has developed a scope of practice for phlebotomy technicians in the State of Michigan and is currently working with local congressional representatives to bring about licensure legislation for phlebotmists. Professor Kimmel states, “There are too many untrained and under trained practicing phlebotomy technicians in the State of Michigan who are placing patients at risk of hospital acquired infections due to their lack of knowledge and insufficient training. This has to change. Over 250,000 patients die yearly due to hospital acquired infections. It is not far fetched to implicate many of these infections from the improper sterile technique and unsafe methods which are being propagated by inexperienced and poorly trained medical assistive staff. Many training programs in phlebotomy are established to push through as many students as possible.   The big problem is that not everyone is on the same page with regard to training. While some schools teach hand draws and others teach that any vein is a viable vein, there becomes a huge knowledge base discrepancy. Every profession needs a scope of practice to help individuals know what they can and cannot do. The practice of phlebotomy is a minor invasive surgical procedure which must be treated as such. The needle is sterile and is going into 6 layers of epidermis prior to penetrating the tunica media of the vein. Until everyone is on the same page, patients are being placed in danger from those phlebotomists who are unaware of the risks their actions pose.”

Our instructors have been with Phlebotomy Career Training since opening its doors in 2009.

Ms. Melaine Cronk is a Bachelor of Science graduate of Kinesiology from Kansas State University.  She received a full 4 year scholarship.  Her experience in the medical field is vast.  She has been employed as a Kinesiologist,  phlebtomist and wound care specialist in the Beaumont Health System since 1999.  Her expertise in phlebotomy far exceeds many in the field as evidenced by her achieving over 500,000 blood draws.  Ms. Cronk’s educational milestones include scoring a 712 on the MCAT’s exam, which automatically provided her with a full scholarship through medical school.  Due to an family members illness, she had to return to Michigan and postpone medical school, later entering the halls of academia as an educator.  We are very fortunate to have Ms. Cronk as an instructor at Phlebotomy Carer Training.  Her educational accomplishments and dedication to teaching have helped hundreds of students become successfully employed in their  prospective fields of discipline.
