Introduction to Phlebotomy Training Course

This training course has been written by Healthcare Professionals with many years of on-the-job experience, giving you access to experts who can guide you through the theoretical elements of this essential healthcare skill, and answer any questions that may arise during your training. Venepuncture and phlebotomy go hand-in hand, so our courses cover both the puncturing of a vein (venepuncture) and the process of drawing blood from the venepuncture site (phlebotomy). Professional training is essential for healthcare staffs Registered Nurses, HCA’s, Senior Care Assistants etc. who are required to take blood samples from patients and service-users in order to diagnose or monitor medical conditions. This course does not deem you competent in performing venepuncture/ phlebotomy without supervision. If you would like to undergo practical training alongside this Introduction Course there is an add on Practical training course you can purchase or you buy both together at a reduced cost. The practical training will enable you to take blood from our specialist training equipment you won’t take blood from actual people after the training the equipment will be yours to keep.
