Product Spotlight: New Collection of ATMs

by Dennis Ernst • December 04, 2020


One of the Center for Phlebotomy Education's most popular product line is our Abbreviated Teaching Modules. ATMs are short 1-2-page in-house continuing education articles---each with a quiz---covering a wide variety of phlebotomy topics. Series A, B & C include 12 lessons each, one for each month. Series C is our newest set.

Now that we've rounded the series up to 36 exercises and packaged them into three sets, managers and educators can purchase a full year of continuing education at a time for facility-wide distribution (within our Terms of Use), or all 36 months worth of exercises in one download. 

The 36-module set is downloaded immediately after your online purchase as zipped PDFs with answer keys for each exercise. Titles include:

Priced well under what you've budgeted for continuing education for next year, ATMs are the easiest way to meet requirements for continuing education as mandated by CAP, CLSI, and likely your own facility. Simply distribute one exercise to your staff each month, collect their answers to the accompanying quiz, grade it, file it, and get on with your day. 

Better yet, for the same price as the full set, join Phlebotomy Central and get access to far more articles and educational resources than you could possibly imagine including the full collection of 36 ATMs. 

Stop scouring the Internet for mediocre resources just to meet your monthly staff requirement. All ATMs are highly researched and reflect industry standards and guidelines.
