Introduction to Phlebotomy GPT003 (Nationally Accredited Venepuncture / Blood Collection) - 72 UK training venues:

An easy-going two day, classroom-based course - theory and ample hands-on practice and experience using artifical arms and fake blood! No previous experience or qualifications required.

The course covers a wide range of topics to start you on the path to a career as a Phlebotomist, starting as trainee (within the NHS is usually Payband 2). A competency certificate may subsequently be issed by your employer after you have demonstrated your skills on a given number of patients, and may take from 2 to 6 weeks.

A nationally recognised and accredited certificate (awarded by OCN Credit4Learning) provides a significant step up the “career ladder” – many employers, colleges and universities throughout the UK recognise OCN credits.
