As a general guide, one hour of active learning equates to one hour of CPD. It is the responsibility of the individual student to calculate how many hours of active learning have been completed. The hours of active learning estimated above should act as a guide to CPD hours.
This program can only be booked as a private onsite program.
This program is open to any individual for whom blood collection is part of the job role, including individuals working in collection centres, hospitals or other healthcare environments.
Groups are capped at 16 students to promote an optimal learning environment.
Blood is most commonly obtained from the median cubital vein, which lies within the cubital fossa anterior to the elbow. This vein lies close to the surface of the skin, and there is not a large nerve supply. The program has been designed to provide students with the required knowledge and skills to safely obtain a blood sample in a clinical setting.
Due to the specialist nature of this program and the need to provide specialist facilitation, this program can only be booked as a private onsite program. The on-site delivery mode enables specialist facilitation and allows the course material to be contextualised to meet the needs of your organisation and staff.
Please note, closed footwear is required for this workshop.

Students enrolled in The Benchmarque Group courses should adhere to the following principles:
Continuing professional development is the means by which members of the clinical profession maintain, improve and broaden their knowledge, expertise and competence, and develop the personal and professional qualities required throughout their professional lives.
The CPD cycle involves reviewing practice, identifying learning needs, planning and participating in relevant learning activities, and reflecting on the value of those activities.
For all other health professionals completing this program, your continuing professional development (CPD) requirements may vary and it is important to remember that it is your responsibility to maintain and register CPD with your professional body. In many instances, your regulatory authority will recognise hours of learning as stated above.
12 Months. The time is calculated from when a student is provided with online access to their assessment. Within the accessIQ platform, students will be provided an initial 12 months to complete and submit all required assessment activities. Friendly email reminders will be sent to students to ensure an assessment is completed on time. At the completion of the 6 month period, students can request up to a maximum of 2 extensions, each extension being for a period of 90 days. If requesting a second extension, the request must be in writing.
If the entire 12 month period expires and a final assessment has not been submitted, The Benchmarque Group reserves the right to deem the assessment Not Competent and remove the student from the program.
If you are deemed Not Yet Competent on your first and second assessment submissions, feedback will be provided. It is very important that you read all the feedback provided. The Assessor will have identified any areas where additional evidence is required or any questions that need to be reviewed and resubmitted. If, after 3 unsuccessful submissions, you are unable to demonstrate competency on your assessment, your assessment will be deemed Not Competent. Feedback will be provided to you and what the possible following steps and outcomes are.
At the completion of the program, successful students will receive a Statement of Attainment for Perform Blood Collection. A Statement of Attainment is issued when an individual has completed one or more accredited units.
