Accreditations

Outline Content

It is recommended that those who perform spirometry should complete the ARTP/BTS full certificate in spirometry or the ARTP/BTS foundation certificate in spirometry. Our Spirometry course will prepare you for these certificates.

Spirometry is only useful as a screening technique where uniformity and quality of practice exist. Without a thorough understanding of the principles involved, the methodology, the effects of the disease on lung function and the interpretation of results, it is difficult for practitioners to be confident and competent in practice. Our Spirometry training course will give you this understanding.

Learning Outcomes

  • To understand how spirometry is performed
  • What spirometry is and why we need it
  • How to maintain your spirometry machine
  • Basic spirometry interpretation and identify abnormal spirometry recordings
  • To problem solve

    Assessment

    Once you have completed the two day training, you will then be eligible to register for the accredited Full or Foundation Certificates, which will both require a portfolio of evidence and a practical and oral assessment six months after registering with the ARTP.
