Pretty much the title of the post here explains it.

Classroom training no. Clinical training yes.
Most phlebotomy certification courses involves both in classroom and 24+ hours of on-site hospital training where you are drawing blood. The latter is clinical as you are actively working in a hospital/clinic and drawing blood from patients.

I'd count hours during which you were drawing blood *from patients* under supervision as clinical hours. Fold this into the hours you've worked/volunteered as a phlebotomist.
