Phlebotomy Skills Workshop (Face-to-face with online theory)

Health Academy
Delivery Method: Face-to-face


This course combines a half day practical face-to-face workshop with a fully online theory course covering all the elements you will need to start taking blood. You will be updated on the background and rationale for blood taking practice and an exploration of the equipment and processes to bring you up to speed with the skill.

So who is the course suitable for?

The course is suitable for anyone who is new to phlebotomy or looking for a practical skills workshop to accompany the theory training. This may be include those who have not practiced their skills for some time or may be changing their role in healthcare organisations.

What’s included in this practical training course?

This course is delivered in two parts:

Part 1 – The theory element 

This is delivered fully online in our interactive e-learning course which you will be able to access straight away after checkout. You can take the course in your own time and we would strongly recommend completing the course before your practical workshop session.


Part 2 – The practical workshop

This half day face to face practical workshop will provide you with hands on time with our experienced trainer to practice all the skills that you will have learned about in your theory part of the course.

Practical face-to-face workshop session times are:

AM sessions – 9.00am – 12.30pm

PM session – 1.30pm – 5pm

Venous blood gases can be obtained from the principles learned on this course.  However, using blood gas machines and blood gas analysis are not covered on the course.

The course I completed with Alys was really engaging and her approach was really relaxed but professional. She really understands the subject that she is teaching and has so much experience to add.
