This 2 day face-to-face travel health training course is very comprehensive and therefore covers all the core elements for health professionals wishing to deliver a travel health service. In order to do this we have developed the course in line with the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) Travel Health Competencies and the new Faculty of Travel Medicine (FTM) Travel Health Good Practice Guidelines (RCPSG)

What’s included?

This is this an interactive and engaging face-to-face or webinar travel health training course. Due to the complicated nature of travel health we cover a large amount of subject matter. Therefore the course includes the following modules:

  • Practical provisions of running a Travel Health Service
  • Professional responsibilities for health professionals working in travel health
  • Completing a comprehensive Travel Health Risk Assessment
  • Introduction to the ‘5T’s of Tropical Disease’ and the ‘Travel Vaccine Traffic Light’ tools.
  • Choosing the correct data sources
  • Vaccine preventable disease lessons on:

Diphtheria, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Japanese Encephalitis, Meningococcal Disease ACWY, Polio, Rabies, Tetanus, Tick-borne Encephalitis, Tuberculosis, Typhoid & Yellow Fever

  • Non-vaccine preventable vector borne diseases
  • Food and water precautions and other disease risks
  • Other risk to the traveller
  • Special risk groups
  • Malaria Risk Assessment using the ABCD approach

What do I have to do in preparation for the virtual course?

This course is made up of two elements, the virtual two days and the online element.

The online element you can find in ‘My Courses’ on this platform. Feel free to start any of these courses prior to your face-to-face training:

  • The Fundamentals of Travel Health
  • The 5 Ts of Tropical Disease
  • The Travel Vaccine Traffic Light

On the next lesson, you will find a comprehensive list of different resources that will be referred to in the face-to-face course. These are here for your convenience to refer back to, no need to study up on these prior to the course.


At the end of the face-to-face element of the training you will be provided with a code by the trainer. All you need to do is enter that code in the certificate lesson on this course and your certificate will be generated.

Knowledgable, interactive, fun and next best thing to F2F learning

Alys was an amazing teacher and able to answer any questions that cropped up. Good mix of presentations and interaction with chance to practice what we learned as we went along. Great resources to take forward into practice. Highly recommend this course to anyone new to Travel Health and looking to get started. Thanks for a great 2 days 🙂

I came across this course through a google search so I wasn't sure what to expect but was reassured by the excellent reviews. Alys was a very engaging tutor and the course was very informative and has equipped me with all the knowledge I need to get going in setting up a travel clinic within our gp surgery. I feel really inspired. Thankyou very much - highly recommend! R Steele GP

The background knowledge of why I am giving the vaccinations

The two day course was very informative. I had no knowledge of even knowing how to start a travel consultation. The course has given me the confidence to start.
