As a prerequisite for a clinical placement in the Phlebotomy Technician Certificate Program, all students must undergo a Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) check and a Sex Offender Registry Information (SORI) check.

Students found to have certain criminal convictions or pending criminal actions will be presumed ineligible for clinical placement.
