One strength we have is all our courses have been developed from experience. Alison Purkiss, the founder and director of PTS, is a practicing phlebotomist herself with over 15 years experience.
Because of this, we can offer a variety of courses, each of which have specific aims, last a specific duration, and as such come in at different price points.
We offer a number of ‘off the shelf’ courses:
- The Basic Course– this is the initial course that people may undertake to help find work as a phlebotomist. The course covers all of the competencies set out in CHS132 (National Occupational Standard for Phlebotomy), and we use safety equipment in all of our training in accordance with the requirements of the Health and Safety act 2013 (Sharp Instruments in Healthcare Regulations). The course is accredited by One Awards and can allow you to work as a phlebotomist upon its completion. The basic course costs £294 inclusive of VAT.
- The Advanced Course– this is the next step up from the basic course, it will enable participants to build on their existing skills and develop techniques allowing them to take blood from hands, feet and from challenging patients with small, mobile or difficult veins. Like the basic course, the advanced course is accredited by One Awards. The Advanced Course costs £300 inclusive of VAT.
We also offer a number of courses which are unique and are tailored to the client:
- Diploma in Phlebotomy– this is a course that is unique to PTS. This course is 9-18 months long, featuring various modules and upon completion you will achieve an award, certificate or diploma in Phlebotomy depending upon the training that you choose. The course price is dependent on the award you pursue. For more information visit the diploma page or call us on 01609 751 610.
- Corporate Training(including refresher course, cannulation course, point of care testing etc.) – due to the breadth of experience and knowledge the staff at Phlebotomy Training Services have, we can offer a variety of courses to a wide range of private and commercial clients. These courses are unique in that they can be built to satisfy the unique demands of the client. We can tailor the modules and lessons provided in the course to plug any gaps or weaknesses found. Because of this there are no ‘off the shelf’ courses, and we cannot provide a baseline cost. Instead, we ask that you either contact us here, or simply call us on 01609 751 610 to discuss your needs.
