School Immunisations with Annual Immunisation Update
If you are an experienced immuniser, however, who needs an annual immunisation update then this option is suitable for you. Includes our Annual Immunisation Update course developed in line with National Minimum Standards (PHE).
School Immunisations with Foundations of Immunisation Online
If you are completely new to immunising, but will be able to have practical immunisation technique assessed by someone in your organisation, then this is the option for you. Includes our Foundations of Immunisation course developed in line with National Minimum Standards (PHE). We have also included Anaphylaxis Management in this course.
School Immunisations with Foundations of Immunisation online and practical video assessment.
For those new to immunising who require a practical assessment of immunisation technique, we recommend this option. Includes our Foundations of Immunisation course with practical video assessment developed in line with National Minimum Standards (PHE). This would be equivalent to face to face training (supervised practice is also recommended). We have also included Anaphylaxis Management in this course. EQUIPMENT IS REQUIRED FOR THIS COURSE OPTION.
What have we not included?
In this immunisation training course we do not cover Travel vaccines, Flu vaccines, or any other UK schedule vaccinations. Please purchase the relevant course packages or add-on courses from the main store area if you would like these included.
We also have Basic Life support available in a separate course.
Please also note that Public Health England (PHE) strongly recommended a period of supervised practice in addition to comprehensive training when the practitioner is new to immunisation.
