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
