Bloody good career path
IF YOU love laboratory work and have an eye for detail, TAFE’S Certificate III in Pathology will fascinate you.
It is designed as an entrylevel qualification to work in the pathology industry.
The course prepares students primarily as pathology collectors, although some students also look for laboratory work.
In this case, they need to have a laboratory technology qualification in addition to the certificate.
The course is made up of units which cover skills such as blood collection, infection control and first aid.
People skills are also important, both in dealing with patients and health professionals.
Students can go on to study the Diploma in Laboratory Technology (Pathology Testing).
There is little overlap in units but the two qualifications complement each other for people seeking work in a pathology laboratory. For more details: tafecourses.com.au
