Learn to collect blood in four hours

Would you like to be able to collect blood even when you can't see a vein?

What we do

We conduct four hour courses in blood collection on weekdays in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Hobart and Adelaide. These are very small groups with very personalised tuition. These courses are only available to nursing, laboratory and medical personnel (RNs, ENs, student nurses, AINS, lab techs, etc). Proof of your medical or nursing background will be required.

Our courses have an excellent reputation and have assisted many participants in gaining blood collection jobs. The courses consist of a combination of lectures, demonstrations and practice. They are presented in an easy to understand manner and are conducted by caring lecturers. On completion you will be an extremely competent blood collector.
