By taking part in an accredited course, you can be sure that you are being trained by professionals. Your assessments are marked by qualified assessors, and these assessors are regulated by a series of checks and measures, like internal and external verification and quality assurance. You will focus on both theoretical and practical elements of phlebotomy, using state-of-the-art, specialist equipment, and in line with the CH132 National Occupational Standard for Obtaining Venous Blood Samples, which have been written for the NHS by Skills for Health. These elements are broken down into individually assessed and accredited units.
An accredited course ensures that what is learnt is of real value, it is not just a tick in the box. By the end of the course, you will not only know how to perform the venepuncture procedure safely and competently, but will also be able to fully understand the role of the phlebotomist.
You will gain confidence in your own abilities, knowing that you have passed a course on merit, through proper assessment, not simply because you turned up. Employers recognise this accredited award as a sign of a skilled, knowledgeable, confident and competent phlebotomist.
