There is one cours offered in Israel, providing training in phlebotomy (or in Hebrew, Lokchei Dam Vridi):

The course lasts 6 full days and it certifies one to treat patients aged 14 and older.

There are additional courses for those who wish to be certified to treat kids (different courses for ages 1-4, 4-7 and 7-14) but only someone who has a certificate from the Ministry of Health in Israel for the basic course (age 14 and up) and at least 2 years’ experience in Israel taking blood from patients 14 and up can qualify to take the next course (ages 7 and up.)

The basic courses are offered all over the country. For more information and to register, please be in touch with Sharon at 02-655-1715 or Sharon.marcus@moh.gov.il (Sharon speaks English).

Further information is available on the Misrad Habriut site (in Hebrew) .

Please note, a knowledge of Hebrew is a prerequisite to take the course.
