What Careers Are Available for Phlebotomists?

The courses available at Phlebotomy Training Services are amongst the best in the country. In the space of a weekend our fully qualified instructors will have you extracting blood samples like a pro.

But this is just the first step. What comes after qualifying as a phlebotomist?

Well, the first and most obvious pathway is to then work as a phlebotomist. Phlebotomists extract blood samples which are typically tested for various purposes. This could be in a hospital to test for infections of diseases. Or you could be in a lab where the blood will be used for research purposes. Recently we have seen an increase in the amount of sports performance professionals needing blood samples in order to test and improve professional athletes.

We find that this is one of the most common reasons people enjoy being phlebotomists. Chances are the blood they take will directly go on to improve somebody’s life, whether directly or as a result of the research being carried out.

However, for some phlebotomy is just the first step on a new and exciting career path. Phlebotomy Training Services offer the only diploma in Phlebotomy currently available. This course allows you to advance your skills far above those of a regular phlebotomist.

Some people decide to take a sideways step and become another kind of medical professional, such as nurses and carers. Phlebotomy is a brilliant way into this as it gives you an accurate insight into the healthcare profession. It will also give you a solid foundation of knowledge which you can then build upon when getting further qualifications.

Phlebotomy Training Services were founded in 2007. We were founded out of a frustration of the lack of high quality phlebotomy training that was out there. This is why we ensure that all out of trainers are not only qualified phlebotomists, but also fully qualified educators.
