Why are you here?

Do you want to learn to how to take blood?

Would you like to learn new skills and take advantage of the UK’s current high demand for phlebotomists?

Perhaps you are a Healthcare Assistant and would like to supplement your income with part-time phlebotomy work.

Or, are you unemployed or about to leave school with little or no formal qualifications?

Are you retired or semi-retired and would like persue a completely different vocation?

Do you want to improve your existing phlebotomy skills?

Do you need continuing education (a Nationally Recognised Certificate awarding you 3 credits at Level Three)?


If you answer yes to any of the questions, this course is for you.

In this course you will learn a new skill which has the potential to be used anywhere in the world. Phlebotomists are in high demand in USA, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and, of course, the UK, and in all these countries the method of taking blood is either identical or very similar to those that you will learn on this course.


Our course comprehensively covers the main three methods of blood collection, and you will have ample opportunity to develop your skills on artifical arms.
