1 October 2019 (Tuesday) - BBTS Certificate
The BBTS sent me an invitation today. Did I want to enrol in the BBTS Specialist Certificate in Transfusion Science Practice?
Yes, I did.
I looked at the link they’d sent, and immediately changed my mind. They wanted over two thousand pounds for me to do this course. Two thousand pounds which I would have to pay.
You know, it’s a funny old world. To become a qualified biomedical scientist you have to do a four-year university course. Then qualify in the lab which can take another to years. And still be expected to shell out for this sort of thing out of your own pocket.
On the other hand you can leave school with a couple of GCSEs and become a conductor on the trains earning far more money with nowhere near as much responsibility.
I don’t dislike my job, but if I had my time again…
