Upon successful completion of the course, a Certificate of Participation is awarded which is valid for two years, however, this certificate does not qualify you as a phlebotomist. If you wish to become qualified practitioner, this can be achieved by further training on qualified technical schools and practising blood taking on a regular basis.
