What will I learn

The course reflects the National Minimum Standards and Core Curriculum for Immunisation Training for Registered Healthcare Practitioners (Public Health England, Revised February 2018) equating to 2 days of learning. The course is designed to support you to develop both the theoretical and practical knowledge and skills required of all immunisers.

Following the completion of this course, you should attend annual immunisation updates.

Course Content

Before attending the one-day classroom-based training course, you are required to complete a pre-course workbook which must be returned at least 2 weeks before the session. Completion of this workbook supports and underpins the curriculum of the interactive classroom-based theoretical session.

  • Storage and handling of vaccines
  • Correct administration of vaccines
