UPDATE: 2nd July 2021

This programme is currently under review. We are aiming for  the review and revision process to take around 12 months to complete but we cannot yet fully confirm this and as such are not yet in a position to confirm a new launch date.  When available, further updates will be posted here and circulated to those who have already signed up to the mailing list.   

Thank you for bearing with us throughout this process.

UPDATE 5th March 2021. 

Over the past 18 months, a cohort of students have undertaken the inaugural run of the above programme.  We are very pleased to report that they have been highly successful in their final results with just over 91% gaining a pass or distinction.

In line with BBTS’ commitment to play a leading role in safe and effective transfusion practice by delivering high quality education and training, we’ve looked very carefully at the feedback received from students for this particular programme and are steadfast in our efforts to provide the finest content suitable to our student needs. 

As a result of the invaluable comments received, we have decided to place the programme into a review period. This means that all modules will be reviewed and revised to ensure that the programme going forward is fully comprised of the very best, relevant and continually engaging content that will further enhance the learning of future students.

If you wish to register your interest, please email to be added to our mailing list. As soon as we have further information, you will receive notification.

Thank you.

*Please note: This qualification is currently only available to UK/ROI applicants.
