About The NAPTP Exam

The Gold Standard For Phlebotomy Technicians

The NAPTP is an online proctored exam that consists of 100 questions which cover a wide range of topics from order of draw to clinical competency, along with OSHA and HIPAA regulations. Students will have two hours to complete the exam. Upon successful registration, students will be granted immediate access to the online exam as well as any accompanying study resources available.

Students who pass the exam will receive their certifications with a seal within 7-10 business days after they pass the exam, and your certification will be recorded on our website to be verifiable by employers.


In order to register for the NAPTP exam, students must have at least 30 live blood draws recorded. Live blood draws can be arranged locally by contacting your local clinic, hospital, or medical center. In addition to the 30 blood draw requirement, students should also have at least a high school diploma or GED. Students who successfully pass the exam along with the other requirements can gain national certification.


If you are looking for additional preparation for the NAPTP Exam, a hardcopy OR PDF book can be purchased. Additionally, a review course is available for purchase with the exam to help you get the preparation you need to pass the exam and gain national certification.


In order to maintain your NAPTP certification, 25 Continuing Education credits must be renewed every two years. The Phlebotomist must also document a minimum of 20 hours of work experience. Additionally, you must also take the renewal exam every two years to maintain certification.
