Basic Life support and Anaphylaxis are also available in separate courses.

In order for beginners to have a comprehensive understanding of travel health we recommend either our Fundamentals of Travel Health online course or our Introduction to Travel Health face-to-face course.

Other considerations

Please note the statement in the ‘National Minimum Standards and Core Curriculum for Immunisation Training for Registered Healthcare Practitioners. (PHE). ‘  That when the practitioner is new to immunisation a period of supervised practice in addition to comprehensive training is strongly recommended.

    Thank you to Alys Bunce who delivered this 1-day course. Her up-to-date knowledge and obvious enthusiasm for Travel Health made it so interesting and informative. Particularly useful was the signposting to resources to check for any health and policy updates. I also loved the 5 Ts of Tropical disease framework. Thank you!

    Alys is an amazing trainer. Her love of the subject is projected on to the students, making it a pleasure to be part the course. I loved the interaction and her gentle correction if the answers are not quite correct. She encourages and bills confidence. Esther Arnold
