Experience in Blood Banking



In response to growing concerns of COVID-19, the Community Blood Center has made the decision to postpone our Experience in Blood Banking: Advanced Course, which was scheduled for April 1st.  At this time we have not selected a future date; however, as soon as we do we will be in touch to confirm your registration. 

Please know that the continuing education opportunities that CBC is able to provide for our customers remain a priority, and we will work diligently in rescheduling. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.  If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out us at EBB@cbckc.org. 

Every year, Community Blood Center is proud to offer educational courses for blood bankers, residents and fellows, and clinical laboratory science students. Experience in Blood Banking courses are lecture-based courses and attendees receive PACE continuing education credits. These courses are free for all Community Blood Center customers, but registration is required.
