    hmmmm...Philippine Red Cross doesn't offer phlebotomy training, although, when u become their volunteer in the blood bank area, they will teach you how to do it, but I don't think they'll give you certificate as a "nurse phlebotomist"

    >>in my case, one hospital hired me to become their nurse phlebotomist<because of my training in Red Cross even though I'm only used in extracting blood on adults at the antecubital vein>med techs, will going to train me further for infant and child blood extraction.


    >>>hope that helps

    I think Philippine Women's University offers a Phlebotomy Course..but I'm not sure if all health/medical related professions can avail the program.
    Better inquire at their institution for verification.

    agrees with Lyfer

    PWU offers a TESDA accredited phlebotomy program. Of course you need to finish TESDA requirements to finally have the license (yes, phlebotomist do have a license card pretty much similar to what nurses have)

    I believe TESDA requires you to have at least 300hours (correct me if I'm wrong) of lab hours for the license.

    I have a friend who is also a licensed phlebotomist that why I know. ;-)

    Thanks for the additional info lactamase.
    I am also planning to enroll in phlebotomy training. I inquired at PWU, but that was i think a year ago. They said the training is for 1 month, enrollment fee is 7k?
    I'm not sure if there has been any changes made.

    I do know someone who worked as a phlebotomist in PNRC. He is a nurse and has IVT training too. Perhaps you could try asking your PNRC chapter. Good luck!

    its been a year since i made a post and to my surprise, im quite overwhelmed with the replies... thanks collegues... hope this helps, i also got to see the website of PWU, they do offer a phlebotomy training.. but when i inquired, some guy told me that the start of training depends on how many would register for the program; likewise, there's no definite "starting date" for the said training... nurse::redpinkhe
